Re-Considered Crossings is an arts and cultural exchange between Hong Kong and Vienna involving over thirty artists, writers, academics, curators, and cultural workers from highly diverse backgrounds. The aim of the project is to encourage dialogue, the exchanging of art and ideas, and, importantly, a re-consideration of practices of cultural exchanges in the context of Asian art shown in Europe and America.

Taking place in both Vienna and Hong Kong in two parts, the project presents an exciting series of seminars, lectures, performances, and exhibitions of lens-based art (photography, digital imagery, video, and installations) featuring work by both up and coming as well as established contemporary artists from Hong Kong and Vienna.

This project is curated by Norman Jackson Ford, Susanne Gamauf and, Klaus Pamminger. It is a featured event of the Hong Kong Fringe City Festival

The project is accompanied by the book Traversals (map book publishers, September 2001) which includes essays by Norman Jackson Ford, Alice Ming Wai Jim, Ramesh Kumar Biswas, and Laurent Gutierrez & Valerie Portefaix, as well as full-colour pages of work by 21 participating artists.
