Richly illustrated, the musée du quai Branly guide book opens the doors to the institution's rich cultural heritage. Its opening pages provide an overview of the building designed by Jean Nouvel, followed by the presentation of the permanent collections arranged according to the sequence of the visit, crossing the four continents that make up the collections: Oceania, Asia, Africa and the Americas. It breaks information down into different levels: main text divided into sections, focusing on the items on permanent display, boxes on various cross-cutting themes, on major historical landmarks, on a particular series of objects or on a technique, chronological tables and maps. It also touches on other areas that make up museum life: the tower of musical instruments, the voyage along "La Rivière", and the mediatheque. Lastly, it gives practical information about the museum (temporary exhibitions, the auditorium, the mediatheque) and departments open to visitors. This guide book serves not only as an initiation tool to make the visit a more meaningful experience, but it also provides deeper insight into the art and culture of the continents represented in the museum.

"The world's masterpieces are born free and equal." In 1990, President Jacques Chirac responded to this bold manifesto from the noted French collector Jacques Kerchache with the launch of an ambitious project to gather France's important national collections of tribal and ethic art under one roof. Today the extraordinarily building by Jean Nouvel houses some 300,000 objects, including 3,500 masterpieces from Africa, the Americas, Oceania and Asia. This book explores the genesis of the project, its five-year building program, and the ground-breaking architectural design for the new museum, from the core collection, displayed in a long, raised gallery following the natural arc of the river Seine, to its distinctive "Green Wall" and landscaped garden. The Musee du Quai Branly is a centre for discovery and learning, designed to encourage its visitors to look at art in new ways, and to respect societies and civilisations that have often been misunderstood.

Museum collections are often perceived as static entities hidden away in storerooms or trapped behind glass cases. By focusing on the dynamic histories of museum collections, new research reveals their pivotal role in shaping a wide range of social relations. Over time and across space the interactions between these artefacts and the people and institutions who made, traded, collected, researched and exhibited them have generated complex networks of material and social agency. In this innovative volume, the contributors draw on a broad range of source materials to explore the cross-cultural interactions which have created museum collections. These case studies contribute significantly to the development of new theoretical frameworks to examine broader questions of materiality, agency, and identity in the past and present. Grounded in case studies from individual objects and museum collections from North America, Europe, Africa, the Pacific Islands, and Australia, this truly international volume juxtaposes historical, geographical, and cross-cultural studies. This work will be of great interest to archaeologists and anthropologists studying material culture, as well as researchers in museum studies and cultural heritage management.

Théorie de la communication et éthique relationnelle montre, à travers des études de cas, que les discours sur la communication sont marqués d'une structure relationnelle qui prend son origine dans la perception de l'espace, dans le langage, dans l'esprit, mais aussi dans les formes graphiques et mises en page textuelles en circulation dans la société. Cet ouvrage met cette matrice relationnelle à l'épreuve, notamment, de la pensée systémique, de la complexité en science, du dialogisme en littérature, du traitement journalistique des conflits, de l'éthique managériale, des méthodes d'apprentissage de la communication, de campagnes de publicité, d'oeuvres d'artistes, de scénographies, de communications par internet.

In 1990 Jacques Chirac, the future president of France and a passionate fan of non-European art, met Jacques Kerchache, a maverick art collector with the lifelong ambition of displaying African sculpture in the holy temple of French culture, the Louvre. Together they began laying plans, and ten years later African fetishes were on view under the same roof as the Mona Lisa. Then, in 2006, amidst a maelstrom of controversy and hype, Chirac presided over the opening of a new museum dedicated to primitive art in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower: the Musée du Quai Branly. Paris Primitive recounts the massive reconfiguration of Paris’s museum world that resulted from Chirac’s dream, set against a backdrop of personal and national politics, intellectual life, and the role of culture in French society. Along with exposing the machinations that led to the MQB’s creation, Sally Price addresses the thorny questions it raises about the legacy of colonialism, the balance between aesthetic judgments and ethnographic context, and the role of institutions of art and culture in an increasingly diverse France. Anyone with a stake in the myriad political, cultural, and anthropological issues raised by the MQB will find Price’s account fascinating.

The present volume comprises 6 highly original studies on material text cultures in different nontypographic societies stretching from the 3rd millennium cuneiform textual record of Ancient Mesopotamia to 20th century Qur'anic boards of northern and central African provenience. It provides a multidisciplinary approach to material text cultures complementary to the interdisciplinary, strongly theory-grounded research scheme of the CRC 933. Six research fellowships were awarded to outstanding young researchers for innovative, high-risk research proposals pertinent to the CRC 933's overall research scheme. Their studies contained in this volume add multidisciplinary dimension to material text culture research, satisfy the curiosity as to the applicability of the theoretical premises and methodology developed and tested by the CRC 933 to research on inscribed artefacts carried out on an international level and in different research environments and contribute to anchoring material text culture research as proposed by the CRC 933 within the tradition and broader context of other research strategies devoted to the material dimension of writing, such as the filologia materiale.

Museums have moved from a product to a marketing focus within the last ten years. This has entailed a painful reorientation of approaches to understanding visitors as ‘customers’; new ways of fundraising and sponsorship as government funding decreases; and grappling with using the internet for marketing. This book brings the latest in marketing thinking to bear on the museum sector taking into account both the commercial issues and social mission it involves. Carefully structured to be highly accessible the book offers: * A contemporary and relevant and global approach to museum marketing written by authors in Britain, Australia, the United States, and Asia * An approach that reflects the particular challenges museums of varying sizes face when seeking to market an experience to a diverse set of stakeholders: audience; funders; sponsors and government. * A particular focus on museum marketing in the 'Information Age' * Major case studies at the beginning and end of each section of the book, and smaller case studies within chapters The hugely experienced author team, includes both leading academics and practitioners to ensure the book has broad appeal and is both relevant, innovative and progressive in approach. It will be essential reading for students in museum studies, non-profit marketing, and arts management and marketing. It will also be equally relevant for professionals working in and managing museums and galleries, heritage attractions and ministries of arts.

Fang art is one of the most distinguished arts of Black Africa. Its masks, with their facial markings, abstract features and strong, elegant lines, were among the most influential in 20th century modern art. Fang figures, called Bieri, are renowned for their child-like proportions contrasted with a muscular, poised vigilance. Fang art also includes iron currency and other objects that exhibit the traditional African ability to making everyday functional objects things of artistic merit. Fang reviews these artifacts and their social, ritual or symbolic characters. Statuettes related to ancestors, dance masks of the various rites, insignia of power, headdresses and jewellery, decorated music instruments and everyday utensils, all have an amazingly varied aesthetic creativity, in harmony with their profuse world of beliefs and myths.

The art of being Tuareg has fascinated travellers and scholars alike throughout recorded history. The elegance and beauty of the Tuareg peoples, their dress and exquisite ornament, their large white riding camels, their refined song, speech and dance -- all have been subjects of rhapsodic descriptions. Together they suggest a Tuareg "mystique," an existence made into art and lived out in one of the world's harshest environments. Art of Being Tuareg: Sahara Nomads in a Modern World examines this "mystique," or identity, as it has been constructed by the Tuareg themselves and by their observers. Historically, the Tuareg have been stereotyped in the West, seen as romantic desert-dwelling warriors and nomads, or even as "bandits" resisting central governmental authority. What these generalizations fail to acknowledge are the complexities of Tuareg history and the remarkable resilience and responsiveness of this people to dramatically changing circumstances, especially their late-twentieth century adaptations to modernity. Art of Being Tuareg, the rich, vibrant result of three decades of research and collaboration on the part of American, European, and Tuareg scholars and institutions, is one of only a handful of English-language volumes on Tuareg life and culture. Bringing together essays by many of today's most accomplished scholars of Tuareg art and society, it presents a comprehensive view of what it is to be Tuareg, exploring the remarkable arts that remain dynamic markers of the strength and perseverance of this highly inventive people.
