The main goal of the project will be to investigate to which extent ‘authentic’ culture isperformed. The main theories used, in order to obtain an understanding of culture andperception, will be Bourdieu’s Habitus, Butler’s Performativity and Goffman’s ImpressionManagement. The analysis will be structured around three different aspects: the object, thephenomenology and the discursive, connected by Brinkmann’s ontological triangle from TheEpistemology of Working with Everyday Life Materials. The theories will be applied in order toanalyze interactions made in Venice, by the group members, in order to determine to whichextent they had performed their culture, and how this can affect the ‘authenticity’ in culture.
