Inter-Asia and the Other Worlds: Wild Connectivity


Inter-Asia Biennale Forum, organized with the 11th Gwangju Biennale



2016 Gwangju Biennial Forum Convener: Kim, Soyoung

Inter-Asia Biennale Forum Initiators: Chen Kuan-Hsing, Chang Tsong-Zung, Gao Shiming

召集人:Kim, Soyoung


On the occasion of the finissage of the 11th Gwangju Biennale, an Inter-Asia Biennale Forum co-organized by Inter-Asia School and the 11th Gwangju Biennale will take place over three days from 4-6 November 2016.

The Inter-Asia Biennale Forum brings together scholars and art practitioners in the context of the Biennale to explore modes of convergence within and across recent social movements and uprisings across Asia, along with the idea of "wild connectivity." This could indicate a form of cosmopolitanism and invoke the perspectives of artistic imagination; a "long historical" view point; and last but not least, gender perspectives.


本屆「亞際雙年展論壇」旨在以第11屆光州雙年展爲基體,聯合知識分子與藝術實踐者,在「瘋狂的聯結」之主題下,探索近期亞洲各地社會運動內部及其之間的聯結方式。 這將指向某種世界主義,並激發藝術想像、以及歷史和性別的不同視角。

Inter-Asia Biennale Forum

The Inter-Asia Biennale Forum is a cross-disciplinary academic project launched by a consortium of Asian intellectuals, presented in association with the Inter-Asia School. The biennales of contemporary art in Asia are among the most exciting public cultural platforms in the region, and this project intends to bring to the biennale platform its engagement with current Asian critical thought.  Based on the themes of individual biennales, the Biennale Forum aims to create a series of projects grounded in the context of Asian realities, in the hope of furthering exchanges among the artistic and philosophical communities.  IABF is sponsored by Moonchu Foundation.
