    „Tofa Si O’u Tina – Farewell to my Mother“
    Ceremonial Samoan Dance Performance
    With Raymond and Ufitia Sagapolutele, Lyncia Muller and Natalia Ioane (Auckland, New Zealand)
    Sunday, 25th August, 5pm
    This ceremonial dance performance expresses respect for the ancestors and adresses the struggle for cultural identity as Pacific Islander in the diaspora. At the same time, it pays tribute to Raymond and Ufitia Sagapolutele’s mother. The images of her dancing (“Siva Samoa”), on show in the exhibition GREY IS THE NEW PINK, were taken shortly before she passed away. For this ceremonial farewell and expression of respect for her mother, Ufitia Sagapolutele has interpreted a traditional Siva Samoa with a contemporary choreography. In this way, the legacy of their mother is artistically continued by her children.

    “POSTED! Reflections of native North America”
    With Martin Nadarzinski
    EXHIBITION TOUR AT THE MUSEUM EMBARKMENT FESTIVAL

    “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
