Buy Back Manhattan

 

There is a story that Manhattan was bought for 24 dollars worth of trading beads from the Natives. We made a small workshop space of making polymer millefiori beads discussing and calculating with the audience their value and how many beads is necessary to buy back Manhattan. Questioning values, talking about colonization and neo-colonization.
