Roundtable – Staging the Historical Record in Asia and Australia

In this roundtable, I asked, with reference to Lee Wen’s Independent Archive and Boris Nieslony’s Die Schwarze Lade, whether or not we spend enough time thinking about what it means for artists to use archival or historical material: that is, beyond revealing lesser known historical events, what else do artists contribute when the archive becomes their medium?

With Michelle Antoinette, Rustom Bharucha, Sadiah Boonstra, Adam Broinowski, Wulan Dirgantoro, Chloe Ho, Ho Tzu Nyen, Kate McGregor, Paul Rae, Danish Sheikh, Corrie Tan, David Williams and others.

There is an official event page here.
