Topics

Artists and art historians will respectively analyze narratives of war time (WWII and Vietnam War) in the Asia Pacific region. From addressing racist atrocities by Japanese forces, sharing transformative art  practices that followed the aftershock of the Pacific Ocean Theatre during World War II, and looking into disobedient artistic attitudes across Asia within contexts of authoritarian rule during the Vietnam War and Cold War period.

A panorama of the history and practice of site-specificity and context responsive art, through theoretical and practical workshops led by artists and curators working with architectural sites to engaging with communities.

Addressing forms in which indigenous and aboriginal traditions, knowledge, and cultural milieu manifest within contemporary art making and have been throughout art history. 

The exhibition as a medium, as a site for unruly experimentation and political imagination. This topic stems from an increasing demand and enthusiasm for curatorial studies and practice in the Philippines.

Experimenting with the conceptual possibilities of dance and choreography as critical forms towards how the body performs in relation to space and social space. In recent years, dance and performance have taken an active role in the institutional dance from the past decades (primarily framed and realized by institutions and festivals in hegemonic centers of power) have radically widened concepts on the dematerialization of art. Its liveness and ephemerality have further challenged the heavily accelerated monetization of object-based art.

The material history in the Philippines considered 'Filipiniana' is often marked by hetero-normative representations of gender, family and nation. Seminars under this topic will take a critical look into representation, imagery and iconography in Filipino cultural history where 'deviant sexualities' and identities take form.
