War, violence and divided societies
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter focuses on effects of the postcolonial struggle, including conflict, divided societies, and the development of transnational identities. It explores how four artists—Yoshiko Shimada from Japan, Sri Lankan artist Jagath Weerasinghe, FX Harsono from Indonesia, and Vietnamese artist Dinh Q. Lê —have engaged with such issues in their art, and how they approach, through their practice, the responsibilities that emerge from history and its traces. It explores how these artists address themselves to contexts of violence and injustice, challenging the treatment of women and minority groups, and remembering the conflicts that resulted from postcolonial nation-building.
