The Investigation of Culture

Art 610

The process of developing Og, and finding how he fits into the concept of culture and the appropriation of culture has led to questions of “why”; why does cultural appropriation happen, why –in my experience– is the act of cultural appropriation completed by white americans. Is it the lacking of a visible white culture, or the lack of a strong rooted tradition in the US. Is that why so much of eastern cultures (Polynesian) have been turned into novelty and commercialized items.

These are just questions I have begun asking.
