“War Material: Vietnamese Objects of Post-War Subjectivity”
Hong-An Truong and Dinh Q. Le are two widely received diasporic Vietnamese artists whose installations have engaged with the interpretative terrains and problematics of memory, subjectivity, and colonialism through Vietnamese historical experience. This presentation will study two of their respective pieces that explicitly confront modes of inhabiting a subjectivity constituted by the material remainders of war.
