Turpin represents Scapegoat at the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics in Sao Paulo

Taubman College part-time lecturer, and University of Michigan Center for Southeast Asian Studies Research Fellow Dr. Etienne Turpin is currently representing the journal SCAPEGOAT: Architecture | Landscape | Political Economy, of which he is a founding editor, at the 8th Annual Encuentro of New York University's Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The Encuentro – Cities | Bodies | Action: The Politics of Passion in the Americas – examines the broad intersections between urban space, performance and political/artistic action in the Americas. From the critical poetics of body art to the occupation of public space by social movements, the event invites participants to explore the borders, identities and practices through which subjectivities, hegemonies and counter-hegemonies are constructed in the spaces of the city and beyond.

During the Encuentro, Dr. Turpin joins the "Politics in/as Visual Culture" working group, convened by Nicholas Mirzoeff and Carmen Oquedo-Villar. Read more about NYU's Hemispheric Institute and their Encuentro model here: hemisphericinstitute.org/hemi/en/encuentro
