DescriptionHUMAN ZOOS, The invention of the savage is an exhibition of anthropology which asks the question of our glance on the Other one, since the arrival of the first "exotic" ambassadors in Europe in the XVIIth century until the exhibitions of foreigners in the international fairs and the zoological gardens of the whole world in the second part of the XXth century.
Of who are we the "savage"? How did these human zoos and shows fashioned the Western perspective and influenced a certain perception of the Other? How can we look at theses pictures?
You guide? Lilian Thuram, general curator of this exhibition. He answers these questions through a fascinating audio-trail and accompanies you to understand better these images, between exotic and monstrous, science and voyeurism, exhibition and shows.
