Luck, Grief, Hospitality - Re-Routing Power Relations in Music
Liza Lim (Keynote speaker)
Activity: Talk or presentation types › Invited talk
A discussion of constructions of power in music looking through the lens of intersecting concerns with gender, race and ethnicity. The talk unpicks some structures in relation to luck in new music; a politics of grief as art in Indigenous women’s business, and the ethics of hospitality as a shaping force in Lim’s compositional language. These examples look at how cultural value is produced through processes of social and aesthetic representation and provide clues for re-routing power in order to increase support for women’s music.
