Talk: The Political Agency of Art with Post-Museum

31 Oct 2019, Thu 07:00 PM - 08:30 PM
The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

Post-Museum has worked alongside a wide network of social actors, cultural workers, and institutions to stimulate public engagement with ideas of identity, society, and community. Their projects have sought to bridge the seemingly distant worlds of art and activism through a diverse oeuvre of events, art exhibitions, and public interventions. In this talk, Jennifer will talk about the work of Post-Museum and how the artistic medium can act as a galvanising agent to foster positive social discourse and encourage collective organisation.

 

BIOGRAPHY 

Post-Museum (Singapore) is an independent social and cultural enterprise in Singapore which was founded by Jennifer Teo and Woon Tien Wei. It aims to encourage a thinking and proactive community while serving as a hub for the development of local and international cultures. Currently nomadic, it is an open platform for examining contemporary life, promoting the arts, and connecting people. Post-Museum hosts investigative and experimental projects which respond to their location and community, such as the Bukit Brown Index (2014­–ongoing) and Really Really Free Market (2009–ongoing). They have worked alongside a wide network of social actors, cultural workers, and institutions to stimulate public engagement with ideas of identity, society, and community. Their projects have sought to bridge the seemingly distant worlds of art and activism through a diverse oeuvre of events, art exhibitions, and public interventions.
