Abstract (English)

"An anthology of writings and photo-essays, this is the first book to address the major cultural implications of the complex and open-ended subject of 'the primitive' in art. It scrutinizes western concepts of primitivism, 'primitive' art itself, and the ways western artists have taken over primitivist imagery, ideas, and techniques." -- Back cover.
