Über diesen Titel:
"The light inside" reflects the essence of the artists' creativity and experience, which Brown treats with an insider's passion and a scholar's rigor. He describes how Abakuá arts have participated in Cuban cultural history, showing how the Abakuá Society initially became a force in port cities, controlling local justice and labor on the wharves; was seen as a "savage" threat to the Cuban nation; and was soon criminalized. By the 1930s Abakuá arts became a prime source for avant-garde primitivism and surrealism, ultimately becoming icons of national folklore since the Cuban Revolution.
Über den Autor: David H. Brown writes on African Diaspora arts, religions, and expressive cultures. He is the author of Santería Enthroned: Art, Ritual, and Innovation in an Afro-Cuban Religion.
