About the Working Group

Critical Ecologies | Critical Anomalies consists of a team of 12 critics and writers, as well as documenters and translators from Singapore, the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia.

Led by coordinator Corrie Tan, the collective is interested in mapping ecologies and vocabularies of critique in the region, and theorizing critique from regions of Southeast Asia in a collaborative way. There will be an emphasis on care ethics and care studies as applied to performance criticism, how critics are situated or embedded within a specific community or context, as well as trans-local exchanges between sites – which would allow us to think about what is specific to local sites or micro-contexts.

Over the course of their residency, the collective will be mapping out personal influences and histories of criticism, introducing and engaging with critical concepts, and identifying shared and diverging practices and principles.
