Repainting the Walls of Lunda

University of Minnesota Press

Chapter Three shifts into the immediate post-colonial period and artists’ active use of Painted Walls of Lunda and other anthropological texts in art and the cultural policies of the newly independent Angolan government. These artists sampled from the global Marxist discourse of “O Homem Novo” (The New Man) during the Cold War.
