About the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology
The Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology carries the mission of exposing the infinite breadth of human cultures for the advancement of knowledge and understanding – often with stories and objects that are hidden in the ordinary. As an institute focused on the study of cultures and of bringing communities together, the Hearst Museum welcomed our video installation that presents a kaleidoscope of lived experiences across cultures.
The Global Lives Project is being presented as a multi-venue video installation in locations across UC Berkeley’s campus including the CITRIS Tech Museum and Haas School of Business Cafe Think later this year. Each of these venues hosts an installation displaying excerpts from the Global Lives library, capturing and uncovering the diversity of human experience through real-time, twenty-four-hour videos of individuals’ lived experiences across the globe. The goal of Global Lives is to spark discussion and reflection about the range of cultures, ethnicities, languages, and religions present in the modern world.
The Exhibit will be on display at the Hearst Museum of Anthropology through the end of the May 2018.
On October 26, 2017 at 6pm, the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology will host a Q & A with David Harris, Founder of GLP and Jason Price, video producer who will discuss the relationship between the Global Lives Project and the fields of anthropology, ethnographic film, documentary, art, and education; the event is free with museum admission.
