Presenter(s):



Abstract:

  • Disorientalism, a collaboration between Asian American artists, Katherine Behar and Marianne M. Kim, will give a presentation on their latest project, Maiden Voyage. Inspired by the Land O’Lakes Indian Maiden and the Shadow Wolves, a special, all-Native, border control unit of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, this project explores issues of privacy, disclosure, surveillance, social class, and mobility through online and offline methods of tracking. Maiden Voyage is part of Disorientalism’s series, “The Food Groups,” which investigates race and labor in American mass food production and promotion.
