06 May 2016 - 06 May 2016  7.30 – 9.00pm

Jegan Vincent de Paul presents his ongoing doctoral research on the People’s Republic of China’s “One Belt, One Road” infrastructure development project. Questioning the role of art in creating new understandings of today’s geopolitical events, his project brings together critical analysis and aesthetic accounts of the “One Belt, One Road” project. Attention is paid to countries where construction and conflict overlap, particularly Burma, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

Jegan Vincent de Paul (Canada/Singapore) is a researcher with a background in architecture (University of Toronto) and visual studies (MIT). He is the co-founder of Counter, where he produced projects for a number of artists and organisations such as Voices Beyond Walls, Nakba Archive, the MIT Museum, and the MIT School of Engineering. He is currently a PhD candidate at the NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore (NTU CCA Singapore), and School of Art, Design and Media, Nanyang Technological University.
