About This Book

The contributors in this volume look for the postmodern in Singapore's culture, its arts, architecture, writing and performance. They embody the spirit of experimentation, in the arts and elsewhere, in a way that responds to the peculiar historical and geographical conditions that make Singapore what it is, and they suggest how the postmodern might contribute to what Singapore could become. Postmodern Singapore emerges from what William Lim refers to as "spaces of indeterminacy," despite the regularity imposed on life by capitalism and bureaucratic administration. Spaces of indeterminacy are not opposed to regularity and order, but show how the unwritten spaces of experimentation and creative rebelliousness can emerge alongside yet against the grain of the orders that conspicuously prevail.
