‘Who Am I Here?’: Diasporic Reflections on Settler Colonialism, Nation and Planet, lecture by Ming Tiampo
Join us for Monash University’s annual Margaret Plant Lecture in Art History for 2021, ‘“Who Am I Here?”: Diasporic Reflections on Settler Colonialism, Nation and Planet’, presented by Ming Tiampo, Professor of Art History and co-director of the Centre for Transnational Cultural Analysis at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada.
This lecture takes the question ‘who am I here?’, posed by artist Jin-me Yoon, as a starting point for thinking through diaspora as a method to reflect upon key questions of colonialism, nation and planet. By engaging with histories of colonialism, militarism and extractivism in Korea and Canada, Yoon’s work creates transversal links between the two contexts that enable multiple scales of analysis through her relationship to place across living time, intergenerational time and geological time. Foregrounding Yoon’s expansive formal, political and existential artistic project, this lecture asks questions about living relationally in troubled times.
