The West
by Constanza Macras | DorkyPark


Großes Haus
Premiere 26.02.20

Inspired by various strategies of Western societies and their worldwide influence – from Africa to Latin America – in The West fictional worlds are developed and the means for constructing visual landscapes – which have shaped the social-economic relations between “the other” and Europe up to the present day – are questioned. Exoticism as a projection of Western fantasy wish fulfilment and as aesthetic exploitation of the foreign in the empire of Western mass cultures. During the height of the Cold War, the CIA invested enormous amounts of money in a secret programme that supported cultural propaganda in Western Europe. In In the United States of Africa author Abdourahman Waberi shifts perspective to a reality in which the Western world no longer plays a role. The West sketches out an anthropological, performative study of Western civilisation and takes a humorous look at Western societies as a dream factory of artificial authenticity.
