People as Centre: Socially Engaged Art Curating in Taiwan

People as Centre: Socially Engaged Art Curating in Taiwan
Speaker: LU Pei-Yi 呂佩怡 ( Taiwan )
Language: English
Date: 1th of April, 20:00-22:00
Organized by / Lostgens’+ CCSCA

‘People as Centre’ is a critical point of curating Socially Engaged Art. This talk will focus on this point and take the exhibition “Micro Micro Revolution”, taking place in the summer of 2015 at CFCCA, Manchester, as a case study. This exhibition aims to explore the power of art as a vehicle to address social change in Taiwan through three socially-engaged art projects: “A Cultural Action at the Plum Tree Creek”, “Plant-Matter Needed” and “500 Lemon Trees”. These ongoing process-based, participative projects use art as a vehicle for addr
essing environmental issues, as a form of resistance, and as a platform for exchange. The great challenge of this exhibition is how to present socially engaged art projects that might be very rooted on specific culture and local socio-political context to the oversea audiences who might even not know where Taiwan is. Through this exhibition, some related socially-engaged art projects from Taiwan will be introduced.

Decolonizing Philosophy: Reading Deleuze and Guattari


何谓哲学?:" 細讀德勒茲和瓜達里的非殖民化哲學 "

Decolonizing Philosophy: Reading Deleuze and Guattari

在本課程中,我們將閱讀德勒茲和瓜達裡 (Deleuze and Guattari) 的主要哲學著作。德勒茲和瓜達裡是六七十年代在法國最有影響力的哲學家,不但影響了當代二十一世紀的哲學的發展也影響了許多藝術,文學和電影理論的發展。我們將研究德勒茲和瓜達裡如何使用哲學概念與殖民主義哲學抗爭。從而,我們也將進行非殖民化德勒茲和瓜達裡哲學的工作. 我們也會討論其他非殖民化作家有如Fanon的著作。我們將閱讀的著作包括德勒茲和瓜達裡的“反伊迪帕斯”(1972),“卡夫卡:邁向少數文學”(1975)和“卡夫卡:邁向少數文學”(1975)。
