Culture Protective Vest, 2018

84.1 x 59.4 cm

The artist´s comment on the artwork

“This photowork consists of two photos. Many people are afraid, afraid of losing their culture or identity. This fear manifests itself in a shift to the right, that runs all over the world. Instead of finding similarities between cultures, differences are sought. The “Culture Protective Vest” is addressing this fear. The vest is made of the typical culture of the country and protects the wearer from foreign influences. With the help of the vest, the wearer can move safely in other cultures than his own, without running the risk of infecting himself with foreign culture.”
