THE GUGGENHEIMHISTORY ANDCONTROVERSYThe Island of Happiness, orSaadiyat Island, will be the newcultural center of the UnitedArab Emirates and the MiddleEast.The island will feature aworld class opera housedesigned by Zaha Hadid, abranch of the Guggenheim,and the Louvre, as well as asatellite campus for New YorkUniversity.This efffort is being made totransform the UAEs economyfrom one based on petroleumto one based on tourism andculture. 12. THE GUGGENHEIMHISTORY ANDCONTROVERSYThe question that remains is who do you get tobuild these massive structures in what was adesert only ten years ago? 13. MIGRANTWORKERS!Workers primarily come from Thailand, India,Bangladesh, Laos, Vietnam, Pakistan, andthe Philippines.These are workers from very impoverishedbackgrounds with little formal education,and diverse skill levels. 14. The Changes that Gulf Labor. Org wants to see1. An end to recruitment fees and relocation costs paid byworkers.2. An end to the confiscation of worker passports byemployers. (Though we recognize that this has appreciablyimproved in recent years.)3. Poor and unsafe housing and living conditions, even in theSaadiyat Construction Village that is meant to embody thehighest standards for worker welfare.4. Lack of freedom to change jobs or to form trade unions forcollective bargaining.5. Lack of open platforms for workers to express grievances orabuses without fear of recriminatioN, dismissal, ordeportation. 15.

THE GUGGENHEIMHISTORY ANDCONTROVERSYThe United Arab Emirates istransforming theireconomy from one basedon petroleum to onebased on tourism andculture.Do they have the right tohire whoever they want toconstruct this?Do they have a right topay workers so little?Does the UAE have to beresponsible for the wellbeing of these migrantworkers?Keep in mind, that many western countries(including the USA) became major world playersthrough the use of free labor aka SLAVERY. 17.

MARTA MINUJNWhat ideas come to mind when you hear these words?Psychedelic ArtUses a lot of colors and I dont know.its really trippy.ASSumption: hippy swirs, whorls, and colors. LIKE BRIGHT COLORSIN YA FACE COLORS LIKE RAINBOW VOMITPop ArtLike celebrities, popular language like SWAG YOLOCommon things that you see often.Trendy.seems unique at first but its really quite common.Bright colors, defined, hi-def.Takes popular CULTURE and transforms it into smething else. 29. MARTA MINUJNPsychedelic Art: music, culture, or visual art based on psychedelicor hallucinatory experiences. Typically vibrant in color and tone.Pop Art : Art based on Popular Culture and Mass Media, especiallyin critical or ironic ways. This is usually the antithesis of traditionalfine art values.

FROM THEBOOK OFGENESIS4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and atower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and letus make us a name, lest we be scattered abroadupon the face of the whole earth.5 And the Lord came down to see the city and thetower, which the children of men built.6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, andthey have all one language; and this they begin todo: and now nothing will be restrained from them,which they have imagined to do.7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound theirlanguage, that they may not understand oneanother's speech.8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thenceupon the face of all the earth: and they left off tobuild the city.9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; becausethe Lord did there confound the language of all theearth: and from thence did the Lord scatter themabroad upon the face of all the earth.Genesis 11:49Example of a zigguratstructureIn Confusion of Tonguesby Gustave Dor, 1865 35. As a pioneer of happenings, MARTA MINUJNperformance art, softsculpture, and video, MartaMinujn pursues a variedand bizarre practice thatshows a profound distrust ofthe collectible art object.Her work is not meant to bebought and sold in thetraditional sense.She often uses ephemeralmaterials such ascardboard, fabric, and foodin work that is bothmonumental and fragile. 36.

What do you think the effects of this project wouldbe if it were to be realized? 43. Minujns performance-basedinstallations aredriven by a desire totransform art from thestatic museum displayinto something dynamic,interactive radical and,ultimately, destructive.As such, Minujns workundergoes apyrotechnic ritual everyfew years. Phoenix-like,out of the ashes newcreations emerge,unburdened by anythingas status quo as culturallegacy.MARTA MINUJNCarlos Gardel of Fire1981Iron covered with cotton.Height: 56 ft. (17 m.). 44.
