Abstract

Using Douanier Rousseau's La Bohemienne (1897) as starting-point, an exploration of how personal memory intersects with cultural history. Seeking out the implications of 'reading' a remembered image from the colonial past in the present, while thinking through what constitutes 'home' for former colonials, hovering between detachment and com plicity, yet provoked by the amorality and amnesia of postmodernist criticism.
