Great Industrial Exposition of Berlin 1896
The print belongs to a series of eight cities, each poster is the visual synthesis of the archival research on how the human zoo exhibition had impacted the hosting city, what scenographic resources constituted the show, and how the idea of civilization and barbarism, progress and savagery were the urban signs that the human zoo show served to popularize in European and Northern American cities. Jarpa understands the construction of these signs as necessary for the process of colonial expansion supported by the construction of the homogenization of the white European race at the same time that racism was popularized.
