The Haute École des Arts du Rhin, an art and music school based in Strasbourg, France, invited Cameroonian artist Hervé Youmbi for a one-year workshop with the students, starting in the spring of 2018. This long-term work, including theoretical writings, museum visits and art productions, ended with an exhibition in March 2019.
This book is the result of all these activities accompanying Hervé Youmbi’s exhibition, with which it forms a three-part dialogue. A text by the artist and the visual montage entitled Scream masks serve as a general opening (FROM YOUMBI). Then come three theoretical contributions placing his approach in a broader context (AROUND YOUMBI), and finally the part relating to the workshop, presenting the artistic proposals of the students involved (BEYOND YOUMBI).
