Urgent Restitution of looted African artifacts

“Behind the mask of beauty, the question of restitution invites us to go right to the heart of a system of appropriation and alienation, the colonial system …”
These are the first words of a groundbreaking 108-page-report commissioned by French President Emmanuel Macron. In conversation with 150 experts in France and Africa, French art historian Bénédicte Savoy and Senegalese academic Felwine Sarr evaluated the need for urgent restitution of looted African artifacts held in French museums. Only time will tell how this report will impact ethnographic collections in France and elsewhere in Europe, such as London’s British Museum and Berlin’s Humboldt Forum.

“Politicians, Priests, and psychiatrists often face the same problem: how to find the most rapid and permanent means of changing a man’s belief…The problem of the doctor and his nervously ill patient, and that of the religious leader who sets out to gain and hold new converts, has now become the problem of whole groups of nations, who wish not only to confirm certain political beliefs within their boundaries, but to proselytize the outside world.” – William Sargant “Battle of the Mind”
