publication and dissemination of the anthropology book Paredes Pintadas da
Lunda (Painted Walls of Lunda), Delinda Collier analyzes two-dimensional images
of the Chokwe peoples of northeastern Angola and their subsequent formats, from
postindependent canvas paintings to Internet images. Collier argues that the
logic of reproductive media envelops the past: each mediation adds another
layer of context and content.

"Collier's book is of particular interest to art historians, historians, media scholars, and cultural theorists for its conceptual framing, applied methodological approaches, and interpretative analysis. Collier offers new conceptual and methodological strategies for situating contemporary African art within longer histories of colonization and decolonization."--H-Net Reviews
"In addition to telling a fascinating story, Collier's book will no doubt furnish scholars from a variety of areas with substantial food for thought, if not concrete models for approaching their own research."--Anï¿½lise Social
"A unique insight into the limits of postcolonial escape from colonial structures of inequality and appropriations."--Journal of Asian and African Studies
