Corporate Colonization

My Master of Fine Arts thesis paper uses the historical phenomenon of colonialism and imperial power to look at cultural hegemony and its tensions between corporate and independent cultures. The territory to which this phenomenon is being explored is through the United States craft beer industry. In conjunction, this paper surveys postcolonial works from the spheres of fine art and design as serving as both a means of response and rebut to cultural hegemony, colonialism and corporate capitalism.
