Trinh T. Minh-ha

March 7 – April 22, 2001

The films and theoretical works by Trinh T. Minh-Ha blend different forms of writing and narrating; the mutual challenge of the theoretical and the poetical, discursive and “non-discursive” languages tell of Trinh T. Minh-Ha’s resistance against categorizations and limitations, which is carried out right across ethnicities and cultures. She shows five films at the Secession and gives an insight into her publications from recent years.


Trinh T. Minh-ha, born in Vietnam, lives and works in Berkeley, California.
