Art Talk: Xenophobia and the Indexical Present (1993;
A talk about my art work from 1968 to 1988 at Seminole Community College in Florida. I
try to show, through discussion of my own work, how art
can function in resisting or transforming the xenophobic
response that is cognitively inherent in everyone. This
talk ends rather suddenly, but contains a lot of jokes.
It may be of interest to institutions in the United
States at which I have had to decline invitations to
speak, because of my status as a Suspicious Traveler on
the U. S. Transportation Security Administration’s Watch List.
