POSTED! Reflections of Native North America
Posters are documents of material culture and a mirror of the social and political worlds in which they were created. This exhibition showcases approximately 100 posters from the 1970s to today to explore specific aspects of the life of indigenous peoples between the Artic and the south of the USA. The topics addressed include, e.g., the importance of heritage and identity, health, the role of education and the military, and problems of domestic violence.
The exhibition in the Weltkulturen Museum's Labor will be curated by anthropology students at the Goethe University Frankfurt in the context of a seminar by Dr. Markus Lindner (The Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology).
Participating students of the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main: Leonore Bittner, Alexandra Buzesteanu, Betelihem Fisshaye, Laura Haas, Lieselotte Illig, Martin Nadarzinski, Alessa Sänger, Flóra Sebö, Convin Splettsen, Linda Thielmann and Catharina Wallwaey
