Colonialism is motivated to dominate, exploit, control, and subjugate a nation of its people and resources with impunity. One of its consequences is colonial mentality. The goal of this body of work is to inform and educate everyone on the impact of colonialism and its effects on Filipino people. At its root, the issue of colonial mentality derives its origin from the oppressive treatment and indoctrination of Western ideals by Spain and the United States, to the indigenous people of the Philippines. This internalized oppression of Filipino culture and identity is a pervading psychological behaviour amongst the ethnic group. This project aims to look at its effect and influence on the Filipino culture to create a discourse of Filipino identity and what it means to be Filipino today.To learn more about this thesis project, click on the website link below to explore Jason Zante's portfolio.
