Standbild TéléMatin France2 20190510 4

The current exhibition "Préhistoire, une énigme moderne" at the Centre Pompidou in Paris includes two loans from the Frobenius Institute. The exhibition focuses on the close connection between prehistoric art and modernism.

In the most important morning news programme on French television, instead of showing works of by Picasso, Mirò or Klee, artists whose work is also shown in the exhibition, it was the two large-format copies of rock paintings made during Leo Frobenius' expedition to what is today's Zimbabwe in 1929 that were highlighted.
