Africká výstava Dr.Emila Holuba 1892 /  / African Exhibition of Dr Emil Holuba 1892, CDROM
"Emil Holub (October 7, 1847 – February 21, 1902) was a Czech physician, explorer, cartographer, and ethnographer in Africa. Inspired to visit Africa by the diaries of David Livingstone, Holub travelled to Cape Town, South Africa shortly after graduation and eventually settled near Kimberley to practise medicine. After eight months, Holub set out in a convoy of local hunters on a two-month experimental expedition, or "scientific safari", where he began to assemble a large natural history collection.
In 1873 Holub set out on his second scientific safari, devoting his attention to the collection of ethnographic material. On his third expedition in 1875, he ventured all the way to the Zambezi river and made the first detailed map of the region surrounding Victoria Falls. Holub also wrote and published the first book account of the Victoria Falls published in English in Grahamstown in 1879."

GARB, T.(ed.), DISTANCE and DESIRE Encounters with the African Archive. African Photography from The Walter Collection, Göttingen 2013(publisher: Steidl // ISBN: 978-3-86930-651-3). Hard cover 32,5 x 24,5 cm. 352 pages with around 200 photographs.
"The Walther Collection is a private non-profit organization dedicated to researching, collecting, exhibiting, and publishing modern and contemporary photography and video art. The Collection has two exhibition spaces: the Walther Collection in Neu-Ulm/Burlafingen, in Germany, and the Walther Collection Project Space in 'New York City.
The exhibition of the Walther Collection's multi-year investigation of African photography, Distance and Desire: Encounters with the African Archive, opened on June 8, 2013. Distance and Desire, curated by Tamar Garb, was the first major exhibition to address the dialogue between ethnographic visions of late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century African photography and engagements with the archive by contemporary African artists. The exhibition included portraits, figure studies, cartes de visite, postcards, books, and album pages from southern and eastern Africa, featuring images made from the 1860s–1940s by A. M. Duggan-Cronin and numerous unidentified and unknown photographers. The historical works were presented together with photography, video, and archive projects by contemporary artists including Carrie Mae Weems, Santu Mofokeng, Sue Williamson, Sammy Baloji, Guy Tillim, David Goldblatt, Zwelethu Mthethwa, Zanele Muholi, and Jo Ratcliffe. Distance and Desire was the culmination of this three-part exhibition series in 2011–2012 at the Walther Collection Project Space and the international symposium Encounters with the African Archive, which took place in November 2012 at New York University."

GROHNERT, R., AFRIKA Reflexionen im Plakat, Folkwang 2012(publisher: Edition Folkang/Steidl // ISBN 978-3-86930-521-9). Soft cover 30 x 22 cm. 91 pages with around 100 illustrations.Spine uncovered. Fine copy
"Das Deutsche Plakat Museum nimmt zum Anlass einen Blick auf die Darstellung zu werfen, wie Afrika in plakativer Öffentlichkeit reflektiert wurde. Die Ausstellung konzentriert sich dabei auf die drei Schwerpunkte: kolonialer, antikolonialer und afrikanischer Blick. Diese zeigen beispielhaft, welche Entwicklung die Reflexion von Afrika im Plakat hatte, welcher Wandel sich vollzogen und wie sehr unser Blick sich verändert hat.

Der koloniale Blick
Thema ist die exotische Ferne, die Andersartigkeit der Menschen, ihrer Sitten und Gebräuche. Die Bilder, die um 1900 und folgend entstanden sind, wurden immer aus dem Blick des Herrschenden erzeugt, immer aus der Sicht des vermeintlich zivilisierteren Menschen verstanden – und auch so vermittelt. Dies gilt für die Produkt- und Reisewerbung ebenso wie für „Völkerschauen“ oder politische Plakate.

Der antikoloniale Blick
Die koloniale Befreiungsbewegung und die Entkolonialisierung Afrikas mischte ab dem Ende der 1960er Jahre die Karten neu. Es wurden Plakate entworfen, die den Blick des Europäers und seiner jeweiligen Interessen an Afrika zum Ausdruck brachten.

Der afrikanische Blick
Das afrikanische Plakat an sich gibt es natürlich nicht, jedes Land hat da seine eigenen Traditionen. Wir haben Plakate aus verschiedenen afrikanischen Ländern zusammengetragen um eine recht unbekannte visuelle Ansprache beispielhaft zu zeigen

"La fin du XIXème siècle et les deux premières décennies du XXe siècle ont été l’âge d'or de la carte postale dans de nombreux pays d'outre-mer. Si la carte postale constitue une mine de renseignements, il ne faut pas omettre les photos cartes de visite qui les ont devancées — tous les photographes, des plus humbles aux plus célèbres de la deuxième moitié du XIXe siècle, utilisaient ce support. Le Répertoire des photographes français d’Outre-Mer recense les photographes professionnels français et étrangers travaillant sur les territoires français du XIXe siècle ainsi que les photographes professionnels français ayant travaillé sur les territoires d’outre-mer autres que la France et l’Europe, photographes pour la plupart actifs entre 1839 et 1920. 
La grande masse des principaux documents utilisés pour réaliser ce recensement sont les photos cartes de visite, un nombre non négligeable d’ouvrages photographiques et de journaux d’époque. Professionnels et amateurs nous offrent ainsi une véritable mémoire de ces pays — Bassin méditerranéen, Afrique noire, Asie, Océanie et Amérique — par leur production personnelle ou par les réalisations d'éditeurs. 
Fruit de 35 années de travail, cet annuaire recense plus de 1000 photographes et réunit des documents émanant principalement des collections des deux auteurs et d’un collectionneur privé. Par son intérêt à la fois historique, artistique et sociologique, il contribue notamment à ressusciter un monde sans doute à jamais disparu."

" At the end of 1898 Bedřich Machulka (1875-1954), along with his friend Richard Štorch (1877-1922), travelled to North Africa, where, in Libya, started his career as a traveller, organiser of safari hunting expeditions, dealer in natural products and expert on African wild life. Apart from collecting natural products, both companions also devoted themselves to photography, an activity they never, for the duration of their African stay, desisted from.  The collection comprises 3,163 negatives. Geographically, the negatives come from the areas where Machulka stayed, that is from Libya, Madagascar, Sudan, Egypt, Oganda, Belgian Congo, Tanganica (today´s Tanzania) and Kenia. They cover the period between 1888 and 1935, the year when Machulka brought his pursuits on the African continent to an end. The publication summarizes the principal data of Bedřich Machulka´s life, deals with his sojourn in different parts of Africa and offers assessment of his photographic work."
