Museo de la identidad fetich-izada (2003) HIDVL

Unedited documentation of a Pocha Nostra interactive performance in the Museo del Chopo, Mexico City. After an intensive workshop with 15 local performance/visual artists, curators, DJ's and musicians, the troupe performs an 'experimental curiosity cabinet', a sort of living museum where participants exhibit constructed 'hybrid personas' based on their own complex identities and personal sense of race and gender. These 'cultural especimens' compose a diorama of fetishized identities, addressing issues of appropriation of hybridity by corporate multiculturalism.
