FOR A DECOLONIAL HISTORY OF ART
The rewriting of the history of art is placed in the global context of the revision of History which is a fundamental axis of the decolonial critique. The methods of History as a discipline are deeply rooted in historically situated cultural universes and rationalities. To rewrite the histories of the art thus necessarily requires a small historical recall and an inventory of the works registered in the decolonization of the knowledge to better apprehend the mechanisms of construction of a decolonial history of the art.
