Conversation: My Body is My Home

Date: Friday, 23 September

Time: 7.30pm - 9pm

Venue: NUS Museum​

Speakers: ila, Dr Kamalini Ramdas​ (Senior Lecturer, Department of Geography, Faculty of Arts and Social Science, NUS)

Moderator: Nurul Kaiyisah

Taking its cue from dancer Rianto’s articulation that “my body is my home”, this conversation explores the body as a space of becoming. Weaving through examples of performance art and embodied work as acts to reframe the body, the conversation will locate the body between memory and history, gendered identity and representations, as well as its current subjectivities and external incursions. In so doing, further potentialities of what the body can be are unpacked, settling into the final inquiry: who do bodies belong to, and who should they belong to?

This conversation triangulates between the screening ‘Memories of My Body” by Garin Nugroho on 14 September as part of the film programme Worlding Through Cinema, as well as the NUS Museum prep-room Yang tidak lupa. Prior experience of both the film and the prep-room are not necessary to attend this event, but is encouraged.


This talk is presented as part of the Worlding Through Cinema film programme. For more information about the film programme, please head to: museum.nus.edu.sg/worldingthroughcinema
