The question of the status of Giacometti’s work is raised: does an aesthetic achievement like his have any historical value? Does it have an implications for a better practice of meeting. Examples of ‘first contact’ negotiations (from Magellan’s voyage and from early Australian accounts of ‘corroborees’) are given to show that in non-western societies, the mimetic techniques used to broker contact are not purely theatrical: they are historical performances.
