Episode 8 of 192 episodes

Without Boundary: Meditations on Truth Thursday, May 4, 2006 6:00 p.m. Understanding work by artists who come from the Islamic world raises complex questions, especially when examined within a postcolonial and Western context. Artists Shirin Neshat and Walid Raad, and Gavatri Chakravorty Spivak, Avalon Foundation Professor in the Humanities, Columbia University, discuss diverse interpretations of truth, as well as how they review, revise, and subvert received understandings of the Islamic world. Note: Only three minutes of Walid Raad's lecture are included in this recording. Held in conjunction with the exhibition Without Boundary: Seventeen Ways of Looking.
