did exoticism become kitsch
A project for 'Le Musée Cognacq - Jay' in Paris
for the 'Paris Design Week 2016' and 'Journée du Patrimoine 2016'
The traditional concept
of the exotic has been distorted in our globalised world. Once only the depiction of the unknown was sufficient to be experienced as exotic, but since the unknown became rare in our world of media, data, transport and travel, the traditional exotic has to be enhanced to a kitsch like status, in order for us to perceive it as exotic.
