The West does everything the best. That's why we are superior to everyone else. Culturally, racially, ethnically, politically, etc.

The ego for...vague markers of culture...is real(?)9

Both posters are extremely ignorant. They do not know what artists of the DRC are capable of.

Art is art. You'll find it everywhere, and everywhere will do it well.

The appreciation of art is subjective, so really, the most objective evidence we have to determine whether or not West art is best art is to gauge the quantity of peoples who subjectively hold that point of view over the others.
That's what GMZ should be looking to supply.

All art reflects in some way the society in which the artist was born and raised. More complex societies usually bring more complex art to the table but to claim that complex means better is a bit nasty to put it gently. Take ars subtilior or Mannerism for example. Viewed by many as the apex of virtuosic technique, it is still less liked and less enjoyable for others with a taste for simpler or just more clear, more harmonic compositions. You can call Congolese art primitive because in the original sense of the word maybe it is, but to claim that European art is not just more complex but also superior is just nonsense.
