Artist Statement:
I am a conceptual mixed media artist, addressing issues of colorism and race in my works. I seek to break stereotypes and address issues related to my life. My artwork is steeped in oral history and expresses the narrative of those whose stories have not yet been fully told. As a storyteller, I impart conceptualized stories about the “other” in society. I view myself as a vehicle for ancestral stories to transcend history and remain part of the historical record. The canvas of my artwork is fabric, which I age and imbue with conceptualized images of a forgotten part of the American story. Using images and text, I embed the cloth with the hopes and visions of my ancestors, particularly those whose stories that have remained invisible. Whether woven or stitched, every time my weft crosses the warp or my needle pierces the cloth, I reach through another layer of scorched earth that slavery has left behind and work to reframe critical issues of race.

Karen Hampton is a Michigan State University, Artist-in-Residence: Critical Race Studies. Hampton joins us from Los Angeles, CA for the 2017-2018 academic year. Her exhibition is sponsored by the Department of Art, Art History, and Design along with the generous support of others including the College of Arts & Letters, Creating Excellence Funding Program from the Office for Inclusion & Intercultural Initiatives, Office of the Provost, and the MSU Federal Credit Union. Additionally she will be offering a public lecture about her work on January 30 at 6PM in 107 S. Kedzie Hall.

Tanja Petrovich, "Military Service in Socialist Yugoslavia" @ S107 South Kedzie Hall | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Lecture by Tanja Petrovich, Institute for Culture and Memory Studies, Slovenia

“Military Service in Socialist Yugoslavia:  Making Sense of (Post)Yugoslav Masculinity.”

This lecture is part of GSAH’s “Rethinking State Socialism” speaker series organized by Dr. Nikolary Karkov.

The lecture discusses the meaning of memories of the gendered, collective national experience of mandatory military service in socialist Yugoslavia. These memories still connect several generations of men – the same men who in the 1990s more or less actively participated in the violent destruction of the country they had served. Irrespective of their personal and professional trajectories, for most of former recruits their army service experience remains important and meaningful. How does the aftermath of national trauma reveal dimensions of this militarized, yet fractured, contested, impassioned, and even sentimental masculinity? How did selves, shaped by the homogenous, socially cohesive experiences in a hierarchical military, survive the centrifugal forces of civil war? How are these memories incorporated into broader narratives through which Yugoslavia is historicized? What light they shed on the relationship between manhood, violence and nationhood? How do they complicate our understanding of state socialism and its disciplinary mechanisms, and what lessons do they hold for the future?
