Lecture: “In the Interest of Time” Dr June Yap, Director of Curatorial Programmes and Publications, Singapore Art Museum

The incidences and treatment of history within the works of contemporary artists raise a few questions: What are the purposes of and reasons for undertaking such aesthetic mediations? How efficaious have these undertakings been? With a focus on works of this nature, the lecture considers the notions of subjectivity and subjectivation as key ideas in the examination of these works. In the notion of subjectivity, the historical act is appraised as a self-regarding activity that emerges from a sense of historicity. Following from this, it is considered if subjectivity might lead to subjectivation.
