Dis/Obedience Performed

SOUTHEAST OF NOW: Directions in Contemporary and Modern Art in Asia issue 6.1 is now out!

Many thanks to Roger Nelson, Eva Ben, and Annie Jael Kwan for the thoughtful editing of this special issue. I contributed a short ‘rumination’ article entitled “Dis/Obedience Performed” about my conversations with friends, Therese Jaynario, Citra Aryandari, Yennu Ariendra, Jocelyn Chng, and Prumsudon Ok on their art practice and reflections on cultures of (dis)obedience.

You can view the entire issue here. And download the article here.
