Postcolonial Artists and Global Aesthetics, Paperback / softback Book

Postcolonial Artists and Global Aesthetics Paperback / softback

Part of the African Expressive Cultures series


What happens when social and political processes such as globalization shape cultural production?

Drawing on a range of writers and filmmakers from Africa and elsewhere, Akin Adesokan explores the forces at work in the production and circulation of culture in a globalized world.

He tackles problems such as artistic representation in the era of decolonization, the uneven development of aesthetics across the world, and the impact of location and commodity culture on genres, with a distinctive approach that exposes the global processes transforming cultural forms.
