Sven Kirsten: Tiki Pop - America imagines its own Polynesian Paradise

Foreword
In America in the 19500, a "synthetic exoticism'. took shape that mirrored the humor and optimism of Me time. Riding the economic expansion of the era, I lawaii's accession to American statehood, combined with Hollywood South Seas concepts and a modern vogue for the "primitive arts," produced a new symbol Mr a less constrained way of him the American Tiki! The Old World's intoxication with Polynesia notches back into the 19th century and before, when explorers' experiences were Milimd for one of the rare forms of eroticism accepted by bour-geois society. The New World's 20th-century Tiki craze brought this fantasy to surprising heights in popular arts and architecture. After its sudden collapse in the midst of the anti—Vietnam War movement and the much more radical eroticimtion of the 196115 generation, the public quickly dis-inherited Tiki style as politically incorrect and in bad taste. This book will allow the reader to discover a large part of this once,forgotten famt of American pop culture through numerous documents, objecis, and images. Its publication coincides with the launch of the first full-scale exhibition on Tiki Pop at the Musee Ott Quai Branly in Paris, orated by Sven Kirsten, an "urban archaeologist" and expert on Tiki style, and author of this, his third book on the subject. The mass of material collected in this and his previous works bears unwa-vering witness to the verve and charm of a style that has recently been undergoing a spectacular renaissance. Long live the Tiki!
Stephan Marlin President, Meson du Quai Branly

"Sven Kirsten"

Sven Kirsten wurde auf einem Frachter der Hamburg-Chicago-Linie seines Großvaters gezeugt. Mit 25 Jahren folgte er dem Ruf der Großstadt und zog nach Kalifornien. Kirsten studierte am American Film Institut in Los Angeles und begann in den 1980er Musikvideos für The Camps, Tom Waits, Sergio Mendes und andere Künstler zu drehen. Jahrelang setze er die Puzzelteile des Polynesischen Pops wieder zusammen und gewann einen einmaligen Einblick in den Tikikult. Kirsten ist wohl der bedeutendste Tiki-Archäologe der Vereinigten Staaten.
