The lives of people around the world are shaped by their status in their groups and institutions with whom they interact. As globalization proceeds and local bonds are eroded, identification documentation such as passports, credit cards, driver licenses and calling cards has become the physical medium in which the political, commercial, cultural and ultimately the spiritual disposition of the individual are negotiated. As new forms and criteria of identification are produced even the nature of identity is changed. The art exhibition "Your Documents Please" reflects issues of identity and its documentation.
Organized by Daniel Georges and Rumi Tsuda with Alma on Dobbin, an international arts exchange organization based in Booklyn, NY.
