The Sino-ASEAN Infrastructural Nexus: Media, Culture, Geopolitics Lecture Series
Photography, Chineseness and the Production of National Cultures in Post-WWII Southeast Asia.
*英文演講(提供中文口譯) Lecture in English (Chinese Interpretation provided)
In the region that would become Southeast Asia, ethnic Chinese photographers have been involved in salon photography (Pictorialism) since the 1920s. In its praxis, these photographers formed amateur photo clubs, participated in overseas contests (salons) and received patronage from colonial / local elites. Even though they were not immune to the competing appeals of political solidarity in that turbu-lent era, many of them ended up participating willingly or unwittingly in the nation-building project. In its praxis and the photographs that it produced, salon photography helped to produce the visual imagi-nary that would constitute the national cultures of Southeast Asia.
