The Tagalog word “bayan” (town), the center of power, for example, superseded vernacular designations of the periphery suc h as “bukid” (farm or countryside) and assumed the\nequivalent translation of the modern ‘nation-state’ or, ironically, ‘country.’ But what happens wh en diaspora has reconfigured the ideological notion of “bayan” and the reci procal framework of “kababayan” (someone who belongs to the same nation)? I nterestingly, the interpellation of “kababayan” often occurs when Filipinos have left the\n“bayan.” “Kababayan,” therefore, exists in relation to loss and otherness precisely in an attempt to establish instant kinship outside the unstable “bayan.” With approximately 12 million Filipinos living abroa d across 100 countries and often through multiple generations, this panel a ims to problematize and accommodate the changing spatiotemporal\ncontexts t hrough which art and culture are produced inside and outside the Philippine s. Engaging in a transdisciplinary discourse to represent differing notions of “bayan” that is perpetually in flux, lacking singularity, and existing between forms and meanings rather than a nostalgic gaze towards a defunct p lace and time, the panel seeks papers that explore instability, ambiguity, and suspension as the defining characteristics of global Philippine art and visual culture.
