Présence africaine is the literary and cultural journal established by the Senegalese intellectual Alioune Diop in 1947, and also became a publishing house from 1949. It was a dissemination tool that allowed black intellectuals and writers to reclaim their cultural and historic identities which had been negated or “exoticized” as a result of colonisation.
About the exhibition
This exhibition presents a number of works and documents from archives, photographs and some objects. Sound and audiovisual recordings also play an important role: documents from the period and interviews specially created for this exhibition animate the visit.
The exhibition's objective is to consider the development and influence of a movement that created a forum for the ideas and demands of black people at a time when the majority of the West had a deformed and even deprecating view of these populations.
