When the museum M organised the exhibition Mayombe, masters of magic in October 2010 as a result of the 50th anniversary of the Congolese independence, they issued a catalogue. This book has now been awarded with the important Prix international du livre d’art tribal. The catalogue was edited by Jo Tollebeek, together with Mark Derez, Liesbet Nys, Eline van Assche, Hein Vanhee en Anne Verbrugge. The internationally renowned French Tribal Art Magazine allied itself with the prestigious auction house Sotheby’s, and assembled a jury of mainly Parisian specialists. This jury rewarded this substantial and magnificently published book with the award for the display and putting into the historical, artistic and etnographic context of the colorful and sometimes surprising objects from Mayombe, a region north of the river Congo.
