19:30 Hrs. I ARTIST IN CONVERSATION I Tinu Verghis, Artist, in Conversation with Prof. Dr. Eva Ehninger, Humboldt University, Berlin

Body. A sight of resistance. Addressing the complexities of representing the self in a patriarchal world and the significance of lived experiences to decipher naked female performances by third world women.

Born in Kerala, India, Tinu Verghis left her modelling career to pursue art as a channel to address systemic injustice, social and gender inequalities. She believes that one can not move forward in a democracy without addressing gender inequality. As a child who grew up in a vill-age where rituals were the way of life, she understands the importance of being one with nature.

Eva Ehninger is Professor for Modern Art History at Humboldt University of Berlin. Her research focuses, among other topics, on the theory and critique of postcolonialism, on the media history of representation and US modernism. Her current Research project is: Art Education between Heritage-Making and Critical Transregionality Teilprojekt im BMBF-Verbundforschungsprojekt De:link//Re:link: Local perspectives on transregional processes of entanglements and disentanglements.
