[LumiNation 2019] Talks – IMHO: Written Country - A History of Singapore Through Literature

In this special edition of IMHO, Cheong Suk-Wai leads a discussion on Written Country - A History of Singapore Through Literature. Written Country intriguingly reconstructs, from works of literature, the history of modern Singapore through fifty defining moments from the fall of Singapore to the Japanese during WWII to the death of its founding prime minister, Lee Kuan Yew, with the writing of prominent writers such as Alfian Sa’at, Lee Tzu Peng, Boey Kim Cheng, Robert Yeo, Tan Tarn How and Haresh Sharma.

About Lumination

Held in conjunction with National Day, LumiNation takes centre stage in The Arts House to explore the Singaporean identity through performances, talks and more. Audiences are invited to discover and reconnect with the quieter parts of the Singaporean conversation over a weekend of thoughtfully curated programmes.

This year, LumiNation explores the theme Building Identity, putting our personal relationships with the nation in conversation with communal narratives and histories, as well as exploring the relationship between the self, place and space in creating a fuller sense of belonging.
