    Abstract

    Many contemporary artists use their practise as a means of visualising the idea of the invisible ‘Other’ and what determines cultural identity, particularly in contemporary culture. Othering is a process in which the identity of those perceived as different, from oneself or the majority, is categorised into positions, predominately either dominate or subordinate. Contemporary culture is associated with the demise and deconstruction of cultural identities, cluttered with victims of westernisation and rise of consumer culture. This further more pushes the poor into the shadows.
