een as an opportunity to establish political ties with the colonial power.From Samoa With Love? traces the history of these displays of “typically” Samoan forms of music, dance, and weapons performance that could be found in amusement parks, zoos, and even at Oktoberfest. Recovering both German and Samoan interests in völkerschauen between 1895 and 1911, the book looks at how these Samoan ethnological displays shaped the ways German people saw foreign cultures. Echoes of völkerschauen, for instance, came to be seen in many works of art of the period, from Ludwig Kirchner’s woodcut Rowing Samoan Woman to Erich Heckel’s Samoan Dance, paintings and prints by the Samoan-descended artist Michel Tuffery, and works by artists of the Dresden-based collective Die Brücke. Featuring interviews with descendants of former völkerschauen performers, the detailed reconstruction in From Samoa With Love? goes well beyond clichés to present a nuanced picture of the phenomena of Samoan ethnological displays.
