Schizophrenia Taiwan 2.0
24 October - 2 November 2014
Thursday 23 October 2014 18:30 - 20:30
SideBySide Studio e.V., La Maison Laurentine and Ambika P3 are delighted to invite you to the private view and exhibition of Schizophrenia Taiwan 2.0, a major touring programme which introduces the work of young and emerging Taiwanese new media artists.
Taiwan's schizophrenic nature will be diagnosed under the following lenses: a condensed symbol of world history, a powerhouse for global digital economy and an ambivalent national status. Part of the world and at the same time apart from it, like a satellite, Taiwan observes, orbits, and transmits messages to this world. These messages coincide the challenges and potential of globalization and cybernetics.
