Talks & Interviews
Kitsch and the Singapore Modern
The following description was extracted from the Introduction in focas Vol. 3 by Editor Lucy Davis.
Discussions of the merits of "playing" also run through our second section on Kitsch and The Singapore Modern, with panel speakers consisting of Venka Purushothman, Tau Kheng Soon, Peter Schoppert, C.J. Wan-ling Wee and Lee Weng Choy. Interest in the forum was augmented significantly by the participation of the eminently quotable authority on kitsch, Tay Kheng Soon, who formulated the relationship between kitsch and Singapore's desire for arrival as the following: "Since we can't be bigger we can be Brighter and Louder and More."
The forum transcription was published in focas Vol. 3.
