Informations and abstract

Keywords: Discontent, Technology, Uncanny.

It is sometimes assumed that in postcoloniality, artists express the desire for a home and in doing so, for an authentic experience. However, in art from the 1970’s onwards that is shaped by postcoloniality, we see an exploration of the problem of home, through various technologies of belonging. An art of dissonance is enabled through attention to the psychic life of spaces of hospitality, and the technologies of collecting and viewing that accompany them. The art objects also have implications for a reinterpretation of psychoanalysis’ relationship to race and colonialism.
