Paris, FRANCE

From my experience, I was staying at Morocco and Paris for the three months, I was wondering that is Western culture the object of people's adoration? Then, is the numerous culture going to be homogeneous gradually? This tendency is not only North-Africa’s situation, but also a lot of cultures even in Japan. In terms of the work at Paris, I gathered the objects from immigrants who were born after decolonization, which were brought from their own county and they do not need any more. The objects will be gotten rid of the color from original surface by French demonstrator’s numerous actions in the fake TV programme. This work poses the question about the tendency of the homogenisation of the world these days by creating a film piece which is the fake shopping channel. Who knows such situation is good or bad, yet this is fact in 2016.

What is the “new international cultural order”?

Even though, they are Moroccan people who live in Third world, it seems that they want to be a Western people as it is generally observed that a lot of young woman wear the Western cloth such as short sleeves, and shorts. Also they sometimes have a boyfriend before getting marriage, and enjoying Hip-hop music rather than conventional music. The country was under French rule until1962, however instead of recover their own culture which was destroyed during under the colonial situation, they seems attempt reconstruct with strong Western culture.
