"New Zealand: Kiwi Consciousness - "An unprecedented visual story illuminated by a passionate creative autonomy that speaks of pride, courage and moral clarity. A multi-faceted portrait of a land at the end of the world, with a unique and original identity derived from the interplay of cultures and ethnicities. This new Imago Mundi collection brings together 210 works that reflect all the extraordinary vitality of a nation that constantly reinvents itself and guarantees its artists the opportunity to navigate in accordance with a personal compass rather than follow the increasingly virtual and impersonal methods of consumerist art.""

Artistic Creation at the service of identity affirmation, mana wahine and political demands

Subtitle: New Zealand Māori women's contemporary art | Language: French

At the intersection of several disciplines – anthropology, sociology, art history, and feminist and gender studies, this thesis deals with the works, practices, careers and discourses of New Zealand Māori women artists active in the field of contemporary art and living in an urban environment. Due to their many forms of belonging, these artists are behind specific political demands and identity affirmations: their work contains simultaneous references to their individual histories, their status as members of an indigenous minority and a tribe, and their condition as women and citizens of the New Zealand nation.
