The Self requires an Other to define itself against. This idea that the foreigner/Other can first be found within us is not new - as Zygmunt Bauman put it, the Other is ‘the vomited enemy’. This week, experience First Contact with the Other, and find a new way to live with yourself, in our city full of strangers. "The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope." - Barbara Kingsolver.

Your art, your space, my Singapore
This talk by sociologist Dr Ooi Can Seng reflects on the state of the arts in Singapore. This talk discusses how the creative economy in Singapore is stratified, how artists are claiming art spaces, why the authorities are concerned with some artists being themselves and why it is in everyone's interest to encourage artists to be the emotional voice of the people. The starting point of the talk is his paper "Soft authoritarianism, political pragmatism and cultural policies: Singapore as a City for the Arts" (click the link below for the working paper). Part of Post-Museum’s National Day programme.
