The son of an anthropologist, Baumgarten spent several years living with an indigenous tribe in the Venezuelan Amazon region. In the late 1960s, he became one of the first artists to introduce representations of minority cultures into the Western cultural sphere. The contributors to this anthology offer different readings of Baumgarten's work, addressing the legacies of colonialism and modern anthropology, and also of documentary photography and site-specific artistic practices.
