Chinese Spaces of Diffusion & Interaction in Africa

While political at the time of African independence, the channels of diffusion and interaction between the African countries and China have predominantly been apprehended over the past few years in economic and geostrategic terms. The notion of “soft power”, sometimes translated as “cultural diplomacy” in French, sums up these different aspects and encapsulates highly diverse facets, to the point of confusion. Added to the fact that its wide usage singularly weakens this concept, it also tends to mask the diversity of situations and players, the superpositions between spaces and actions, the imaginations engaged, and configurations according to country.

Produits chinois en Afrique : réseaux de diffusion et modes de consommation

This panel intends to offer a new perspective on the massive arrival of Chinese products effecting Africa for the past fifteen years.

Arts contemporains : imaginaires de la Chine en Afrique et de l'Afrique en Chine

Links between China and Africa today tend to be thought of, primarily, in economic and/or political terms. The arts, or culture more broadly, are given relatively little attention, for they are considered to be of secondary importance. The result is, at best, a partial understanding of both artistic production and political and economic concerns. Clichés and forms of xenophobia, as well as imaginaries and dreams of elsewhere: such are the foci of this panel. The panel centers on the work of contemporary artists living in China, South Africa, Congo and France and brings together both artists and art scholars to ...
