Title
Give me back my black dolls : Damas' Africa and its museification, from poetry to moving pictures
Author
Abstract
This essay links Léon-Gontran Damas poetry to Matthias De Groof s experimental film, Rendez-les moi , based on Damas poem Limbé. By offering an interpretation of Limbé in relation to the museification of African artifacts, the film frames the re-evaluation of Damas as artistic intervention. Kathleen Gyssels goes beyond the way the visual experimentation tries to galvanize Damas artistic vision and focuses on the figure of Damas black dolls as a metaphor for gendered discrimination, thereby moving beyond classic antagonisms of Négritude.
