Baule: African Art, Western Eyes: Susan Mullin Vogel

The sculptures of the Baule people of the Ivory Coast have long been recognized in Europe and the United States as one of Africa’s most significant art traditions. The work of many modern artists – Amedeo Modigliani in particular – refelects the direct influence of Baule invention and forms.

This text explores for the texture and details of Baule life and art. Illustrations include field photographs showing artworks in the intimacy of daily lives and public performances, and museum photograophs of Baule sculptures. Susan Vogel focuses on the creation and uses of Baule works of art apart from their definition as “art” in western eyes. She establishes a means for understanding Baule expressive culture from the perspective of the Baule individuals.

Sen. Feinstein Dismisses Youth Activists’ Call for Green New Deal

Feb 25, 2019

California Senator Dianne Feinstein is coming under fire after a video showing her interaction with a group of youth climate activists, some as young as 7 years old, went viral over the weekend. In the video, Feinstein dismisses the students’ demands to take action on climate change, including supporting the Green New Deal, which was recently introduced as a resolution by New York Congressmember Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey.

Youth activist 1: “Scientists have said that we have 12 years to turn this around.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein: “Well, it’s not going to get turned around in 10 years. What we can do is put ourselves”—

Mother: “Senator, if this doesn’t get turned around in 10 years, you’re looking at the faces of the people who are going to be living with these consequences.”

Youth activist 2: “The government is supposed to be for the people, by the people and all for the people.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein: “You know what’s interesting about this group is, I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I know what I’m doing. You come in here, and you say, ‘It has to be my way or the highway.’”
