ASIA-ART-ACTIVISM: Experiments in Care and Collective Disobedience
is a polyvocal collection of 18 essays by leading academics, artists, curators and researchers who address urgent questions of the complexities of UK Black/Asian race relations and migrations, in parallel with global Black/Asia political entanglements and tensions, reflections on the rise of anti-Asian/migrant sentiment in the UK in relation to the ‘Hostile environment’ and the weaponisation of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Digital access to collections is an important function of many Southeast Asian art archives. As digital resources and nodes for peer-to-peer sharing, these archives play an important role in seeding new research and cultivating a regional historical consciousness.
Building on Documenta XV’s focus on collective practice, this workshop brings together representatives of artistic and intellectual collectives to reflect upon the practice of curating, making, and thinking together.
For GAX 2022, Curators, scholars and researchers Liisa-Ravna Finbog, Biung Ismahasan and Annie Jael Kwan come together with panel chair John Tain to talk about their work on the Sámi Pavilion and (People of Remarkable Talents) PORT Perak Pera + Flora + Fauna at the 59th Venice Biennale.
