Lecture: Post-colonial critique today – Stefano Harney

Subject

Description

Is there still a place for postcolonial thought? Globalization, the rise of emerging markets, and networks of social media girthing the earth would appear to leave the postcolonial behind as a phase through which many nations have now passed. The rise of global biennales, robust art markets in Mumbai, Shanghai, and Rio, and genrebending, expanding fields of art practice would equally appear to make the term postcolonial only a matter of brand enhancement in the world of art. But is this really the case?

By returning to some of the great thinkers of the ‘colonial situation’ and some of the theorists of its postcolonial aftermath, Stefano Harney will investigate the renewed power of a postcolonial critique today, as much as in Singapore, as anywhere, and as much as for art, as for political economy.
