Beyond the Body

Volume 2, Number 4, December 2003
by Mark Bessire

Article Description

Mark Bessire's paper explores the notion of “transculturalism” in Gu Wenda's works which tend to parody the role of cultural colonialist from a suspended cultural position as a citizen of the diasporic world. In negotiating this position his work is considered to go “beyond the body.”
