Fundación Interchange is a foundation for independent
cultural anthropological research, based in the Netherlands and
baptized in july 1998.
To realise these goals the Foundation endeavours to investigate specific problems related to the research domains of ethnicitiy, popular culture and migration and document its results to a wider audience in the - primarily - Anglophone world. It tries to mobilise and stimulate autochtonous cultural movements and explore their possibilities for their entrance on the global market; not just to sell their cultural produce, but to create an awareness of their identity, their desires and needs.
To this end several projects have been started to document on these
various autochtonous cultural movements, or on their 'interchange' with
Western institutions. Depending on the development of local culture this
interchange ranges from the zero degree of
exchange - ethnocide - through
acculturation to cultural exchange between equal - or at least
respecting each other - partners,
the appropriation of otherness.
The foundation logo is based on a precolumbian rockpainting.
As the Guri dam was built in Venezuelan Guyana, the rock was moved
to the Caracas museum.
