Afrique: 300.000 ans de diversité Humaine

Our Homo sapiens species appeared in Africa about 300,000 years ago. From this remote origin, the continent has been inhabited by countless populations that have been diversifying both biologically (from genes to skin color) and culturally (from technical skills to languages), as they have moved from one region to another, according to climatic and environmental changes. The incredible human diversity that we observe today in Africa is therefore the result of a long series of migrations, adaptations, and innovations that this exhibition approaches.

Making Of


About Humanae

Humanae is a photographic work in progress by artist Angélica Dass. Currently composed of almost 4,000 portraits from volunteers all around the globe, Humanæ pursues to document humanity’s true colors and bring up a critical reflection on the white, red, black and yellow false labels associated with race. The project does not select participants and there is no date set for its completion.  It is a journey of open-ended possibilities that enriches the way we see ourselves, beyond faces and colors. Nowadays, the artist has been doing portraits in 36 different cities and 20 different countries.
