Photography and Postcolonial Perspectives in Contemporary Art
Sara Blokland and Asmara Pelupessy (Eds.)
Start with a think-tank approach to the question of how photography in a post-colonial world can “fix” cultural identity. Turn the idea into a multi-platform symposium and exhibition involving a multicultural group of artists of color. The result is this multi-layered exhibition catalogcum- reader that explores the elusive “truth” of photography and its relationship to ethnicity, culture and identity. The book includes essays on cultural identity and photographic representation as well as exhibition documentation with color plates, installation views and graphics. Featured artists include Charif Benhelima and Otobong Nkanga; contributors include Kobena Mercer and Pamela Pattynama.
