Abstract (English)

"Model Minority is an assemblage of the readings, articles, ephemera, and archives discovered and created from Gendai Gallery's year-long programming series issued under the same name. The book contests the self-pretence of a unified Canada build on a foundation of diversity and passive coexistence. Instead, Model Minority invites an unpacking of the construct of "Minority" outside of official state discourse to see if evidence of a more critical or even radical multiculturalism might emerge through conflict, contradiction, and solidarity, in the context of our settler-colonial legacies." -- Distributor's website.
