Palazzo delle Prigioni

Curator of Taiwan Exhibition / Hongjohn Lin

Participating Artists / VIVA,Kuo-min Lee,Huang-chen Tang,Shih-chieh Huang,Ming-liang Tsai

Borrowing from the observations of German sociologist Helmut Wilke about new cultural topologies arising in the midst of globalization, the exhibition responds to issues related to the dissolution of borders by globalization, such as the shrinking of the world's territories, superimpositions of space, and urbanization. Furthermore, it reflects upon the special context of Taiwan within the logic of globalization.
