Art of being Tuareg : Sahara nomads in a modern world by Thomas K Seligman( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This excellent volume is an essential addition to the limited scholarship resulting from more than a century of Euro-American fascination with Africa's Tuareg peoples. This catalog, from a collaboratively produced exhibition, examines the Tuareg in multiple contexts, enriching anthropological and art historical studies with essays on Tuareg poetry, music, dress, and gender roles. Attention to Tuareg music usefully balances the study of artfully crafted instruments and traditional musical forms with the contemporary music, often electrically amplified, that has a growing presence in popular world music today. This volume will interest audiences in anthropology, African studies, and geography, in addition to students of global art history. Artists who work with textiles, jewelry, and metalwork will find here beautiful and fascinating artworks that are rarely examined in such depth. Analysis of the signs and symbols repeated in these objects and in other decorative patterns (i.e., architectural decoration) shows how the interpretation of their meanings varies widely, in part because the Tuareg nomads have historically preferred the oral tradition to written documentation

Che Guevara left his imprint on history and on the hearts and minds of artists and writers throughout the world. In this work, art historian David Kunzle traces the man and myth globally in posters and artwork, examining iconization and commercialization, fantasy and fact. Reproductions of rare photographs and artwork appear here for the first time. Contributing author Maruice Zeitlin tells of a midnight meeting with Che in Cuba; Shifra Goldman discusses the defacing and restoration of a mural of Che in Los Angeles during the early 1980s; Fabian Wagmister surveys the international poetric oeuvre inspired by Che; and Christine Petra Sellin takes a critical look at Hollywood's Che! The book includes art depicting Che and his message from Latin American countries as well as Poland, Ireland, Sweden, Vietnam, Italy, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Portugal, Germany, Spain, and the United States.--From publisher description
