Who defines the truth? A tricky question, especially when it comes to history. It is accepted that Singapore was founded by Sir Stamford Raffles of the East India Company, but there was also a mythical pre-colonial founder: Utama. The art historian Ho Tzu-Nyen undermines established thinking and on his computer retouches the great classic works of Eastern and Western painting. His talk/performance offers an ironic look at the ‘make-up artists’ of identity and history.
