GIDEST: The Facticity of the Voice
The work of Soyoung Yoon
Soyoung Yoon is Program Director and Assistant Professor of Art History & Visual Studies at Eugene Lang College and a 2017-18 Faculty Fellow at GIDEST. Her current research focuses on the re-definition of the “document” and the shift in its claims to the real from the post-WWII period to the present. At GIDEST, Soyoung is completing her book Walkie Talkie, which revolves around the rise of cinéma vérité and critiques of what Michel Foucault describes as the hermeneutics of the self amidst anti-colonial struggles and the development of new techniques of policing.
