Abstract:

Performance artists Guillermo Gómez-Peña and Coco Fusco travel and appear before the public in four different countries as two "Guatinaui Indians", members of a fictional "newly discovered" tribe who had agreed to be displayed at malls and museums around the world, after the manner of human exhibition in the 19th and early 20th centuries. These performances are intercut with archival footage of humans displayed in cages as freaks and curiosities. Conceived as a "satirical comment on the past", the performances evoke various responses, including huge numbers of people who are convinced they are real and do not find the idea of "natives" locked in a cage objectionable.
