Restaging the Colonial Encounter: Exhibition Culture and Practices of Fictionalization
This essay explores a scenario from Herman Melville’s novel Typee (1843, 1892) and compares it to Coco Fusco and Guillermo Gómez-Peña’s performance Two Undiscovered Amerindians visit the West (1992). Both texts can be understood as comments on the history of exhibition practices, inviting readings from a postcolonial perspective.
