The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

Deconstructing Asian history from the 20th century from a cultural studies perspective, Professor Chua will trace parallels to the histories addressed by the works in the exhibition. Expanding on political themes such as communism in Malaya or Thai insurgence, historical narratives occurring in the featured works will be further contextualised and interpreted. The socio-political backgrounds of the different installations and films not only gain clarity but are understood within the larger frame of Asian modernity.

Part of the public programme of Ghosts and Spectres – Shadows of History.
