Seminarium: The Tangled Web of Belonging

The talk will weave personal stories of othering, fairy tales and narratives of unity and separation into a tale of belonging. Mangalanayagam reflects on the complexity of multiple heritages in the post-colonial West and how this is explored in her visual art works.

Nina Mangalanayagam is a visual artist working with still and moving image. She has a Masters in Photography from the Royal College of Art and a PhD by practice from the University of Westminster. In her practice, Nina explores themes of belonging and hybridity, often using a semi-autobiographical approach. Her research analyses the shifting points of identification she experiences as a mixed heritage subject, to explore the dichotomy of black and white notions of identity. Nina is a visiting lecturer in the UK and in Scandinavia. Current and recent institutions include Portsmouth University, Camberwell College of Arts, UK and Akademin Valand, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Seminariet kommer vara på engelska. Alla seminarier är öppna för forskare och studenter om inget annat uppges.
