"THIS IS NOT AMERICA... IT'S WORSE" (2010)

 

EXHIBITION AT PAVILLON ARCELOR IN ESCH-S-ALZETTE (L)

 

"THIS IS NOT AMERICA" analysed and reflected, in variable mediums and ways, the USA of today and its unmissable impact on today's world. The main aspect being analysed in this expo was "Americanization". Americanization being the influence of the United States on the popular culture, technology, business practices, political techniques or language, of other countries. Inside the U.S. the term most often refers to the process of acculturation by immigrants to American customs. Critics sometimes give "Americanization" a negative connotation because they perceive as negative the far-reaching American influence in many countries, and may fear the loss of local customs and traditions... so do I.
