Title

The Geopolitical and Biophysical Postcards

Description

This public conversation addresses the possibilities and uncertainties faced by societies within and beyond the boundaries of Southeast Asia, focusing on the notion of national representation and its challenges: How are geopolitical boundaries configured and rewritten in the specific context of the Biennale di Venezia, and what visibility and forms of acknowledgement can such a platform offer to younger nation-states and new or imagined political entities? Such questions will be explored through a focus on three Southeast Asian countries participating in the Biennale Arte 2015: Singapore, The Philippines, and Indonesia. The conversation will extend the discussion to the presentations of Hong Kong, India & Pakistan, and Tuvalu in this year’s edition of the Biennale. In the format of a structured conversation rather than a presentation on stage this event invites those interested and invested in the topic to take part in this open debate.

The Geopolitical and the Biophysical: a structured conversation on Art and Southeast Asia in context is conceived as an extension to Charles Lim’s SEA STATE project presented at the Singapore Pavilion and is in response to Okwui Enwezor’s curatorial theme for the 56th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia: All the World’s Futures. It is organised by the NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore (NTU CCA Singapore) under its Research & Education programme, which aims to connect academic research with other forms of knowledge production.

The programme is commissioned by the National Arts Council of Singapore (NAC).
