β€œIn an age of near-global commodification, how do we study cultural and ethnic difference, and how do we navigate the complicated map of plural multiculturalism?” β€” Dr Farish Ahmad Noor

In this talk, Dr Farish Ahmad Noor will engage with the history of Southeast Asia. He will speak about how the colonial imaginary envisioned Southeast Asia as a land of boundless opportunities for capital, and thus regarded it as a fertile zone for conquest and appropriation, bringing the colonial enterprise within the ambit of a modernist-instrumentalist mindset.

This Exhibition (de)Tour is part of the public programme of Amar Kanwar: The Sovereign Forest.
