November 2017. The French president Emmanuel Macron pledges to return the artworks stolen from African countries during the colonial period. Amongst the 90,000 works from sub-Saharan Africa as belonging to the French collections, the sculpture representing the god Gu, claimed by Benin, crystallises all that's at stake with these restitutions.
