Product Description:
The Colonial Encounter: Views of Non-Western Art and Culture. Promoted in its time as a celebration—or at least a fully informed study—of foreign ethnicities and customs, the 1900 World’s Fair is recognized today as a spectacle of Eurocentric myopia. This program lays bare that conceit as it interweaves archival photographs, film clips, and posters from the Fair with commentary from renowned art historians. Offerings from museum collections across the world, including radically decontextualized Dahome and Dogon carvings and images from Palestinian refugee camps, are also featured. The result is a profound look at the ways in which Western prejudice, ethnography, and art consumption have counteracted authentic intercultural dialog. Produced by the Open University.
