Riassunto: Art in the Service of Colonialism throws new light on how nothing in the Moroccan French Protectorate (1912-1956) escaped the imprints of metropolitan ideology and how the French transformed and dominated Moroccan society by looking at how the arts and crafts were transformed in the colonial period. The French established vocational and fine art schools, revived local methods for producing crafts, imposed modern systems of industrial production and pedagogy and reinvented old traditions. By marrying the old with the new, they revitalized arts and crafts and made them saleable commodities. Hamid Irbouh examines and analyses these processes and demonstrates how Moroccan artists have struggled to exorcise French influences and rediscover their authentic visual culture since decolonization.
A highly original, meticulously researched, pioneering investigation, not least in addressing the role French colonial women played in diffusing and maintaining French visual culture in the Moroccan feminine milieu. This book will interest a very wide range of readers, not only in the history of Morocco, but also in art and design history more generally and especially, the rapidly growing field of post colonial studies. It sheds immense light on the distinctive characteristics of contemporary culture in this North African country.
Anthony King, Professor Emeritus of Art History and Sociology, State University of New York.
[A] well-conceived book based on original arhival sources...this is a novel approach to colonial art history, situating Moroccan art production in large social, political and ideological contexts. --Stuart Schaar, Professor Emeritus of Middle Eastern and North African History, Brooklyn College, City University of New York
