Abstract

By placing the Parisian exhibition Magiciens de la Terre, curated by Jean-Hubert Martin (1989) at the centre of an ideal timeline, the essay outlines a context deliberately ignored by Martin and his curatorial staff: among the participating artists, Rasheed Araeen will entrust to the pages of the magazine "Third Text" a critical analysis of the curatorial vision of the French team and will entrust to the exhibition "The Other Story" (1989), curated by himself, the task of reacting to the manifest ignorance of "other" cultures, certainly not without racist connotations, dominant in Europe in the eighties.
