9781934691472: No Deal!: Indigenous Arts and the Politics of Possession (School for Advanced Research Global Indigenous Politics Series)

No Deal! encompasses a diverse group of artists, curators, art historians, and anthropologists from Australia and North America in order to investigate social relations of possession through the artifacts and motifs of Indigenous expressive culture. The contributors speak from the standpoints of Indigenous systems of knowledge as well as from western epistemologies and their institutions, interrogating what it means to “own culture.” The case studies in this volume contribute to notions of “ownership” and “possession” through the lens of art and its associated rights to production, circulation, performance, and representation.

Review:

A hugely useful resource for anyone interested in Indigenous art, culture, and questions of cultural appropriation and ownership, with some of the leaders in their fields providing valuable and thought-provoking cross-disciplinary perspectives. --Terri Janke, Terri Janke and Company Pty Ltd, Intellectual Property Lawyers, Australia

Over the last fifty years, Indigenous art movements in Australia, New Zealand, North America, and elsewhere have been vital and potent in unexpected ways. Fresh, up-to-date, engaging, and engaged, No Deal! provides the best guide I have read to the politics of native art. --Nicholas Thomas, Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Cambridge

Tressa Berman has brought together new voices to make sense of the often complicated art world that has historically marginalized non-Western voices. Though Indigenous peoples in North America and Australia continue to live under the colonial weight of the West, there is a growing discourse that articulates these weighty circumstances that Berman and the contributors to this volume take charge in formulating and offer new strategies for engaging. --Gerald McMaster, Independent Scholar, USA and Adjunct Curator, Art Gallery of Ontario

Tressa Berman, the volume's editor, so brilliantly describes the practices of Australian Aboriginal artists in one of her contributions.... The essays in this volume offer some insightful and provocative ways of approaching and analyzing the complex issues surrounding the politics of representation in museums and other exhibition contexts. --W. Warner Wood, Journal of Anthropological Research, vol. 70, 2014
