KultuRE-SHOCK


KultuRE-SHOCK aims to view the Philippine society in different aspects- dwelling in the continuous desire of individuals to define the Filipino culture. How do we really see the Filipino way of life? In its place in the modern world, do we still see Pinoys as always the least prioritized, the neglected, the undeserving? Do we see the Filipino culture as collective subcultures of rugby boys, of families eating trashed leftovers, of sampaguita vendors on the streets, of pick-pockets and snatchers, of squatters, of undisciplined, of traffic-violators, of refugees? Do we, as Filipinos ourselves define “Filipina” the way Greeks do?

KultuRE-SHOCK is a freedom for a Pinoy to choose what he wants to be, where he wants to belong, alongside, taking into considerations his blood line, his roots- that he is a Filipino. As artists, we wish to express our own versions through the wit of the brush, or the might of the camera or however, as long as art becomes a means to communicate how we ponder on this idea. We do not wish to say that this is the true definition of “Pinoy”, but at least, we become active and conscious of the direction Pinoys are now going to because we’re part of it, we’re affected by it.

It maybe fantasy to believe that the third-world Pinoys can be seen as first-world or world-class or forerunners in various fields. But conviction tends to lead ‘assuming’ to ‘becoming’. KultuRE-SHOCK encourages many to, at least, mull over the thought of finding social identity for Filipinos- thus, and may, spur a desire to accomplish, to become what they conceive Pinoys can be.

It is a call to RE-SHOCK- to shock, to alarm Filipinos, again.
