Forms of Cultural Appropriation
Named for Susan Sontag’s legendary 1969 film, this book brings together current commentary on the controversial issues of cultural imperialism in the Dutch East Indies. In meaty texts and film excerpts by Raimond Chaves, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Hans Heijnen, Paulo Herkenhoff, Gordon Matta-Clark, Ossama Mohammed, Wendelien van Oldenborgh, Christodoulos Panayiotou, Jose Alejandro Restrepo and others, the project tackles topics like post-war cultural imperialism, forms of urban creole sub-cultures, and the role of institutions designed to classify and display the artifacts of other cultures. Includes stills from Andy Warhol’s cult-classic film, Susan Sontag. A rich buffet of ideas and images, this book is the final product of a multi-disciplinary program produced at Agentur, a project space in Amsterdam.
