Generation Return: Version 1.5 is an evening of spoken word, hip-hop, and video screenings featuring urban voices from Phnom Penh to NYC. The line up includes performances by Bochan Huy, praCh Ly, Anida Yoeu Ali, Kosal Khiev, and video selections by Studio Revolt. This event highlights artistic practice as a means to address issues of collective legacy and contemporary justice. Featured Cambodian American artists are actively engaged in international dialogues and community activism through art. The event title is a reference to the “1.5 Generation”, individuals who either “came of age” under the Khmer Rouge or were born in refugee camps. As products of war and as intergenerational witnesses to genocide, 1.5-generation Cambodian American artists have been on the frontlines of capturing the traumatic past and pushing for international justice.
A moderated community discussion on justice and the Cambodian American community to follow with Dr. Cathy Schlund-Vials and 1Love Movement.
