Preview

In Singapore, ‘history’ is only permitted to make an appearance in the form of propaganda for the government’s milestones, or as water-coloured or sepia-tinted nostalgia for humbler, simpler times. Tan Pin Pin’s pair of hour-long documentaries “Singapore GaGa” (2005) and “Invisible City” (2007) are both acts of remembrance and documentation of Singapore´s history.
