A talk by Paul Sorrentino @ The Factory Contemporary Art Center

Paul Sorrentino, an associate professor of anthropology at Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (France), will examine both the rituals of the ‘Mother Goddess Religion’ and the ways they were successively described by scholars (and others) across time, in both colonial and post-colonial contexts.

He will also speculate on its deeper history, as it appears crystallised in its contemporary forms. The separation between the ‘Mother Goddess Religion’ itself and its scholarly accounts may then seem to blur, and the cult's recognition as an intangible heritage itself may appear as pertaining to a long-lasting historical process of integration of local cults.

This special evening is held in association with the group exhibition ‘Singing to the choir?' by Phan Anh, Trần Minh Đức, Ngọc Nâu.

*This talk will be in English with Vietnamese translation.
