    Stereotype: Misconceptions of the Native American exhibited at the MoCNA in Santa Fe NM from Aug. 15- Dec. 31, 2013. Artist Cannupa Hanska Luger addressed several preconceived notions about Native people supported by popular culture that have been invented, imagined and rooted within the American public's social conscience. During the performance, Destroying the Stereotype, the artist let go of the stereotypes embodying his sculptures and invited the community to witness their destruction. The remains of the destroyed ceramic sculptures are on view for the duration of the exhibition (December 31, 2013). The process of creating this body of work and then destroying it has been documented to share with the public. This short film is just a teaser, a full length (approx. 30 Min.) film will be made by Aug. 2014. It will be free for public use to further the education and awareness surrounding the issue of stereotypes. This film poses a way to allow art and expression to inspire and teach. It will provide reflection on the journey artist Cannupa Hanska had while creating and destroying this body of work. A fundraising initiative will be in the near future to help compensate this films production, stay tuned and thank you for your support. www.cannupahanska.tumblr.com www.cannupahanska.com

          • Up to the South (Talaeen a Junuub)

            01:00:27

            from Jayce Salloum / Added

            Up to the South ((Talaeen a Junuub) a videotape by Jayce Salloum + Walid Ra’ad 60 minutes, 1993 Up to the South is ostensibly a documentary on the south of Lebanon exploring the conditions of the time it was shot, the issues behind those conditions and their representation both in the West and in Lebanon itself. Within this we were trying to tackle two other concerns. One being the terms (and positions) inherent in the discourse surrounding the issues, i.e. terrorism, colonialism, occupation, resistance, collaboration, experts, spokespeople, leadership, the land, etc., and the other being the history and structure of the documentary genre specifically in regards to the representation of other cultures by the West in documentary, ethnography and anthropological practise and the problems/agenda involved from the perspective of the subjects viewed and the practitioners practising. Up to the South challenges traditional documentary formats by positing representation itself as a politicized practice. The pathology of misinformation and misrepresentation when dealing with other cultures can be epitomized by the media's coverage of Lebanon in the West. Lebanon is/was described in fluctuating tones of nostalgia and regret, fear and loathing, e.g. "Lebanon's Final Assault on the West", "Death of a Nation". It is a country written off, its death proclaimed and sanctioned, Arabs are depicted as evil savages and money grabbing, xenophobic, Western hating fanatics with no morals, intent on self-destruction and deserving of such a state, living in an endless cycle of violence, corruption and blood, "establishing carnage as a Lebanese birthright". The Lebanese voice surfaced in the Western mind only in its most perverted forms of extremism. Produced by and for the West to fulfil its ambitions these voices were creations of Western self-interest and miscomprehension. In this well equipped bank of delusions the stereotype enters the image currency and fills the mainstream void allotted it. This absence enforced is appropriately symbolic as the actual culture is marginalized even further from our perceptions. Misperception being the guiding facility of the coverage and misunderstanding its inevitable by-product. Lebanon has been used as a metaphor, as a 'site' serving the real and imaginary for various ‘visitors’ throughout its history. It has been a ground for a history of claims, discursive texts and acts of 're-construction'. It has become an adjective for the nostalgia of our past and the fears of the future. We have come to understand so very little in spite of the massive amounts of ‘information’ we have received regarding Lebanon, the war and especially the situation in the south of the country that for one to even mention the name all sorts of images come to our minds. What basis in which realities do these images have, where in Lebanon are these realities situated? Who are we really talking about, us or them, or some other construction in-between.

                      An intervention at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in New York City. This is a performance-based political intervention the weekend after Thanksgiving, the museum's busiest time of year. Placing a pack of American Spirit cigarettes, the iconic Native signifier, with English doily covered in tomato juice to make a statement about a more authentic Native history and to serve as commentary on existing Native stereotype. This particular AMNH exhibit, representing "Eastern woodland Indians," has been on display with little change for the last hundred years. The phenotypically molded Native features on the mannequins seem timeless and lifeless with an air of romantic noble savagery. No real characteristics of the people exist here, just a museum representation.
