Disorientalism is an ongoing collaboration between Katherine Behar and Marianne M. Kim. Through live performance, video, and photographic projects, the duo explores how technologized labor, junk culture, and consumerism mediate race, gender and bodies. In character, the Disorientals expose our hapless submersion in junk culture, and our failed attempts to rationalize it by mistakenly resorting to industriousness and work. Recent exhibitions include de la Cruz Collection in Miami, the Poznan Biennial, and The Wassiac Project. Behar and Kim have individually been supported with grants from the Franklin Furnace Fund, NEA/Dance USA, Meet the Composer, Arizona Commission on the Arts, Illinois Arts Council, and the U.S. Consulate General in Leipzig.
