ethnic festival – notes on “ethnic costume” in archaeology

October 10th, 2022 § 0

Take a good look at the photo below. The photo is from the “International Ethnic Festival in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, 07 July 2022”, simply a meeting of people from the post-Soviet empire celebrating some nonsense, like thirty years ago (brotherhood, unity and such things). The festival also takes place during the tense moments of the national genocide in Ukraine and depicts young Russian women enthusiastically representing “Russian folklore”.


So and now to the “national” clothing: jeans fitted above the hips we all remember from the American action movies of the 80s. The baseball cap has been an American invention since the Brooklyn Excelsiors started using them on the baseball field at the end of the 19th century. And a shirt with a collar? René Lacoste and the US Open…
Welcome to the ethnic festival…
