GENERATION RETURN: ART + JUSTICE POST-GENOCIDE AND POST-9/11

featuring Anida Yoeu Ali

Artist, Writer, and Global Agitator Anida Yoeu Ali upholds the belief that art is a critical tool for individual and societal transformation.

Born in Cambodia and raised in Chicago, she returned to live in Cambodia in 2011 after nearly 3 decades away. She is part of a returning diaspora of artists and thinkers creating narratives of Cambodia beyond war and poverty.

Her performance and video works with collaborative media lab Studio Revolt and the Khmer Exiled American community provocatively consider the diasporic past/present contours of the Cambodian American experience.
