What is the mouth? How to define it? From the plateau women of the Mursis to the blackened teeth of the ohaguro, from the filed teeth of the Pygmies to the tongue taken from the Maori hei-tiki, how has the mouth and its different attributes been considered? What place does it take in the relationship with others, linguistically, socially, emotionally? How do we consider it today?

Qu’est-ce que la bouche ? Comment la définir ? Des femmes à plateaux chez les Mursis à la dentition noircie de l’ohaguro, des dents limées chez les Pygmées à la langue tirée du hei-tiki maori, comment a-t-on considéré la bouche et ses différents attributs ? Quelle place prend-elle dans la relation aux autres, linguistique, sociale, affective… ? Comment la considérons-nous aujourd’hui ?
