With Negerplastik (Escultura Negra in portuguese) the Santa Catarina University Press publishes the first book by Carl Einstein (1885-1940) edited in Brazil. In this context and doing justice to the nowadays important relation between art and political action, this article presents information in multidisciplinary perspective about the artist/writer, the translation of “Negergebet” and “Drei Negerlieder”, considering the relevance of African arts and literature in Einstein’s work, as well as a reading guide tuned and useful in order to understand his work.
