Kviečiu pažiūrėti mano paskaitos „Mapping the Self: Being Born In a Place One Does Not Belong In“, skaitytos Nidos meno kolonijoje reziduojantiems menininkams 2012 m. gruodį, vaizdo įrašą (anglų kalba). Paskaita buvo programos „ON HOSTING AND DISPLACING: Critical tourism, site-specificity and post-romantic condition“, kurią 2013 m. gegužę užbaigs to paties pavadinimo simpoziumas, dalis.
Here is the video recording of my talk titled Mapping the Self: Being Born In a Place One Does Not Belong In, given to the artists-in-residence at Nida Art Colony in December 2012 (in English). The talk was a part of the program ON HOSTING AND DISPLACING: Critical tourism, site-specificity and post-romantic condition, which will culminate in a symposium at the Colony in May 2013.
The summary of the talk:
“How does one build one’s connection with a place where one is merely a representative of the last wave of colonizers? How does one construct one’s self in relation to this place? What does it mean to be a colonizer, and can a colonizer ever become a local? What role do place names play in colonizing or “domesticating” the new territory, and how does naming and renaming transform the place? How can one displace oneself creatively and positively in a place that has a history of violent displacement, conquest and colonization? These and similar questions will frame the presentation that will hopefully turn into a productive discussion.”
