This lecture will explore the ways the ideas of the South have shifted from the geo-political anti-colonial, pro-development genre, to the cultural-aesthetic regime of transnational hospitality and inter-local affinities. However, whether we zoom in or zoom out, there is always another kind of attention that is often missed, it is the creative practice, the act of making a space attractive to the other, and this is a cosmos, or else we could see this as the world making function of art.
The lecture is open to the public.
