Edited by Solange De Boer. Interview with Homi Bhabha by Solange de Boer, Zoe Gray. Text by Clint Burnham, Jessica Morgan, Edgar Schmitz. Introduction by Nicolaus Schafhausen.

Brian Jungen is perhaps best known for his Prototypes for New Understanding (1998-2005), a series of reproduction Northwest Coast Aboriginal masks made from disassembled athletic shoes. That ingenious mash-up of two seemingly disparate hot commodities--globally branded footwear and revered First Nations artwork--reflects the artist's own hybrid cultural identity, as both a member of the Doig River band, a tribe in British Columbia's Dunne-za Nation, and a fixture of Vancouver's thriving art scene, a position recently cemented by a show at the Tate Modern in London. Other meldings of consumer goods and common materials through which Jungen has explored the exchange of goods, ideas and cultures include a basketball court made of sewing tables and a whale skeleton built from plastic lawn chairs. All represent the Postmodern, postcolonial world with aplomb and a sense of humor. Includes an interview with the important postcolonial theorist Homi Bhaba.
