SAD: This Girl’s In Love With You
Co-presented with Becca d’bus.
Hosted by Preetipls.

The stratospheric icon of the Singapore Girl emerges in early independence, when this city positions itself between East and West. We look at an early instance of deployed heritage, whose conscripted body has birthed decades of post-colonial nation building, paradigms of Asian hospitality, and fantasies of the kebaya-clad Oriental Other.

Why have we celebrated this complex national figure for close to 50 years? And how has every Singaporean worn a kebaya-print at some point in their lives?
