Fieldsketches:
My Life and Times Among the Natives of Vienna

The book is modeled after a 19th C European travel diary and served as a record of my artist in residence at the Weltmuseum Wien in 2016. It contains handwritten impressions and encounters with the museum and its staff, including quotes and references to past anti-colonial voices such as Aimé Césaire. Frantz Fanon, Vandana Shiva and contemporary lyrics on black and brown migration by Asian Dub Foundation.

Here is a link to a talk I gave about my work and the Weltmuseum Wien.
