This 25th year anniversary has led to numerous commemorative exhibitions, seminars, and institutional statements. Having become enmeshed in the crisis of postcolonial ethnographic authority that affects museums that mistook internationalism for universality, the Centre Pompidou took advantage of the situation to review the geo-aesthetic map that shaped its collections and institutional discourses, organising seminars (Magiciens de la Terre: vingt-cinq ans après. Le 25ème anniversaire d’une exposition pionnière, à l’orée de la mondialisation de l’art), exhibitions of ‘global art’, and a series of publications (Décentrements, Arts et mondialisation, anthologie de textes de 1950 à nos jours). Meanwhile, in late 2013, the publishing organisation Afterall released the second volume in the series ‘Exhibition Histories’ under the title Making Art Global (Part 2). ‘Magicines de la Terre’ 1989. In April 2014, in collaboration with Afterall, the Tate Modern organised the series of debates and projections ‘Magiciens de la Terre’ Reconsidered.
