Over de rol van kunst in een globaliserende samenleving

Framer Framed

Iftikhar Dadi

Iftikhar Dadi’s research examines art as a global and networked practice from the late nineteenth century to the present, informed by theorizations of modernity, contemporaneity, and postcoloniality. It brings these methodological insights to the study of the modern and contemporary art of South Asia, the Middle East, and their diasporas. A second research interest examines media, crafts, and popular culture with reference to ongoing socio-aesthetic transformations in the region, seeking to understand how emergent urban publics forge new avenues of civic participation. Dadi’s curatorial projects and his work as a practicing artist have further served to enrich his academic scholarship.
