Item description for Bushman Art: Zeitgenýssische Kunst aus dem sýdlichen Afrika / Contemporary Art from Southern Africa by Pippa Skotnes...
Bushman Art is the title of a book that provides a comprehensive introduction to the variety and independent character of the arts of the San communities (also known as bushmen) living in southern Africa. This art is sold in galleries throughout Europe and the US. After only a few years, specific support for promising artists led to the creation of a lively art scene. By now the prints and oil paintings generated under the auspices of the cultural project 'Schmidtsdrift/South Africa', regularly find their way into international galleries and collections. To lessen the plight of the San, who had been driven from their traditional hunting and living areas in Southern Africa, the Evangelischer Entwicklungsdienst (Protestant Development Service) set up all-embracing programs to provide the San with new economic, social and cultural opportunities.
