Peripheral Insider: Perspectives on Contemporary Internationalism in Visual Culture

Couverture
Khaled D. Ramadan
Museum Tusculanum Press, 2007 - 240 pages
In Denmark there has been a tendency to view expatriate art not as part of current global developments, but as expressions of ethnic cultures of little importance to contemporary art practice. In contrast "Peripheral Insider" argues that expatriate art or internationalism in visual art is not only part of the global art discourse. It is a phenomenon with a specific history, closely related to colonial and post-colonial experiences. Stine Høxbroe, Stine Høholt, Staffan Schmidt, Bülent Diken, Carsten Bagge Laustsen, Anders Michelsen, and Khaled D. Ramadan elucidate the books main theme on various theoretical levels and set forth their analyses of a number of issues relevant to new interpretations of "the postcolonial agenda". The authors pose questions about the problem of identity, curators responsibility with respect to the "others' art", Orientalism and fundamentalism. Naseem Khan, Gavin Jantjes, Ria Lavrijsen, Y. Raj Isar and Tabish Khair are primarily absorbed in the analyses of the many impediments that expatriate artists have run up against in different countries, especially Scandinavia.
