What would an experimental poetics of migration look like? Is it possible to tell stories about the histories and politics of postcolonial movement without relying on documentary, reportage and social realism?
This talk highlights an eclectic body of work - mostly by South Asian diasporic artists - that deploys left-field aesthetics and genres (abstraction, pulp, mutant hybrids) to explore unusual geographies (the Arctic, outer space, Asperger's 'inner' space). Is it possible to see migration with a new set of eyes?
Welcome to a talk by Sukhdev Sandhu, Director of the Center for Experimental Humanities and Associate Professor of English and Social and Cultural Analysis at New York University,
