    schema:description "This book examines the impact of the emergent discipline of ethnography upon the artistic avant-garde in 1920s and 1930s Paris. This book demonstrates this with reference to the sculptoral work of Giacometti and Picasso in the early 1930s and the rise of the surrealist object. This book reveals how antrhopological approaches began to affect the ways in which artists, theorists, critics and curators thought about three-dimensional objects and their changing status as 'art', 'artefacts' or 'ethnographic evidence.' It analyses texts, photographs and art works that cross disciplinary boundaries, through case studies including the Dakar-Djibouti expedition of 1931-33, the Trocadero Ethnographic Museum, and the two art periodicals Documents and Minotarue. It brings out the contribution of figures such as Michel Leiris, Marcel Mauss, Marcel Briaule and Georges Henri Riviere to this radical ferment of ideas at a particular moment in French intellectual history. -- Dust Jacket."@en ;
