Re-Re: Reshaping the Notion of Resistance is a series of programmes accompanying the exhibition, A Hundred Years of Shame – Songs of Resistance and Scenarios for Chinese Nations, on view at Para Site in 2015. The series consists of three events, each exploring from different perspectives the appropriate attitudes of artistic creation and cultural production in the face of nationalism.
For the first event, Para Site invites(curator and art critic), (Assistant Professor at Tainan National University of the Arts), and (co-curator of A Hundred Years of Shameand Senior Researcher at Asia Art Archive) to discuss issues about Chinese identity in the resurgence of nationalism in China. Does this call for national spirit facilitate a specific identification? Or is it an ideology for liberation? In addition, apart from “resistance”, what kind of “metonymy” should be adopted?
A Framed Identity or a Liberated Ideology
The session will be conducted in Mandarin.
