SHIGEYUKI KIHARA: Culture For Sale

Culture for Sale is a live performance and interactive video installation at City Gallery. Informed by the 19th century Samoan men, women and children who toured Germany as part of a “human zoo” or “Völkerschau”, this project is one outcome of Kihara’s recent travel to Germany which investigated archives related to the German colonial administration of Samoa from 1900-1914.

Culture for Sale questions the commercialization of Samoan culture following the recent 50th Anniversary of Independence in Samoa.
The first iteration of this project was presented at the Sydney Festival in 2012.
