Fascinating and well made show in Centre Pompidou with the theme: Préhistoire une énigme moderne

Préhistoire une énigme moderne in Centre Pompidou

Summary of the introduction of the exhibition

In what way does the emergence of the notion of prehistory correspond to specifically modern expectations? Through what channels did artists enter into this breach openend in perceptions of the world? How are the concepts, speculations, discoveries, dreams, fears and desires reflected in it? Our vision of prehistory is one of the beginnings of time, always lacking or fragmentary. Over this vast horizon, the perception of prehistory has been modified by modern art, just as much as modern art has been modified by the perception of prehistory.

Fascinated by these traces that date back to the mists of time, major artists conributed to giving them meaning.

With: Robert Delaunay, Barbara Hepworth, Jacques Lipchitz, Willi Baumeister, Jean Arp, Ives Klein, Joaquin Torres-Garcia, Alberto Giacometti, Louise Bourgeois, Richard Long, Wassily Kandinsky, Joseph Beuys, Christian Dotremont, Brassai, Miro, Klee, Buster Keaton and more.

A pity that they only looked at American and European artists. In South Africa it is also an important theme with a number of contemporary artists. Which makes sense considering the important discoveries that are made there.
