All White People Look The Same To Me

Imagine the Berlin Zoo would not be famous for Knut, the little giraffe or the funny monkey but for a real Kenian family or little Indian babies displayed there. If we would still be in the 19th to 20th century this could actually be possible. Public exhibits of humans, usually in a so-called natural or primitive state, were common in zoological gardens all over Europe. The so-called savages were as interesting to the fine educated ladies and gents as exotic creatures from the forest and the sea. In the piece All White People Look The Same To MeNotes On National Pornography which premiered at Hau 3 last night, the Human Zoo is recreated with stereotypes of white people. The 50s pin-up girl, the safari hunter, snow-white, a blond hairy monster who looks like coming straight from the Adams family are just a couple of extravagant characters you will meet by visiting this piece. An absolutely hilarious combination of fantastic actors directed and written Ariel Efraim Ashbel and Romm Lewkowicz to create an interesting collage of associative scenes to this anthropologic topic. If you miss to see the piece (because it is nearly sold out) you can still look at their funny tumblr here. Enjoy some pictures and the details after the jump.
