This exhibition/workshop was led by multi-media artist Aman Mojadidi who worked with students from Noah's Anthropology of Democracy course and other students to design a series of ARTifacts. These ARTifacts are meant to combine truth with fiction to reflect the way that objects and exhibitions can reinforce or upend power relations. Students worked for 2 days in the wood shop and in locations around campus to find artifacts and then create their own unique, often historically disruptive back stories. Artifacts included a murder weapon, tools used by elephants to dig for food and a Sandinista pin.

This workshop was funded by a grant from the Davis Center. The pieces will remain on display in VAPA through the first week of March.
