Research Curator at Tate Research Centre Sook-Kyung Lee joins us for the latest in our Decommissioned lecture series.
This talk looks at diverse manifestations of political consciousness in Asian art, from direct critique and activism to non-participation and apparent disengagement as means of resistance. How can art transform the everyday functions of such sites as the city centre, the courtyard and the river bank into contested territories? Is it possible to interrogate charged sites such as decommissioned power stations and demilitarised zones through non-actions? How can the artist’s body become a site of interaction, challenge and resistance? The talk will also examine what makes repressive conditions and prohibitive environments catalysts for radical acts.
