Exhibition: Dialogue photographique entre Jean Rouch et Catherine de Clippel

When the exhibition “Nous et les autres. Des préjugés au racisme.” (“We and the others – From prejudices to racism”) is held until 8th January, 2018, the musée de l’Homme launches another retrospective, this time dedicated to Jean Rouch and Catherine de Clippel’s photographic work. This event is organized for the centenary of the birth of the French producer and ethnologist Jean Rouch (1917-2004), in partnership with the Comité du film ethnographique, the Fondation Jean Rouch and the musée de l’Homme. We discover the common journeys of both artists however some twenty years away, that strode along Africa, from Mali to Ghana, to realize their photographic and cinematographic works. The exhibition is divided into five themes: rituals and possession, bereavement, traditional hunting pursuits, colonial Africa and independences, and modernity. It is in this way that the works bump into each other, come and discuss together, in a particularly well thought out path, to find out next to the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni.

Exhibition “Dialogue photographique: Jean Rouch & Catherine de Clippel” ("Photographic dialogue: Jean Rouch & Catherine de Clippel"), from 25th October, 2017 to 7th January, 2018.
Open every day, unless on Tuesday, from 10a.m. to 6p.m.
