In her lecture, Paradise Lives in the Ruins of Colonial and Dictatorship Architecture, Stephanie Comilang talks about her research and work into feminising and decolonising spaces of colonial and imperial architecture in Southeast Asia, by way of a drone called Paradise. The lecture will be preceded by a screening of Lumapit Sa Akin, Paraiso (2016) and followed by a moderated conversation with the artist.
