DISORIENTALISM :: Katherine Behar + Marianne M. Kim

Disorientalism is an on-going art project by Katherine Behar and Marianne M. Kim.

Public Performance, 2007


Taking to the street, the Disorientals assume the guise of a clean-up team. Roaming through Times Square with magnet brooms, they collect metal objects in their path. Next, in the role of archaeologists, they collate and label the specimens they have amassed. As outsiders, they must devise theories to explain how each object could be put to use in a disoriented civilization.
