us, you, #metoo

It has been one year since the New York Times published a report on the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. The article unleashed the #MeToo movement that has swept across the globe in almost every industry, profession and calling, including art and publishing. To mark the anniversary of this historic moment for women to speak out and share their experiences of sexism and sexual harassment, in our Nov/Dec issue of ArtAsiaPacific we focus on artists who, through their work, highlight the challenges women face. For our cover Feature, AAP Beijing desk editor Tom Mouna met up with Ma Qiusha, an artist who came of age during China’s massive social, cultural and economic transformation. Mouna considers Ma’s diverse practice encompassing performance, video, installation, photography and painting, all…

on kawara

Typographic forms inscribed on canvas, stamped on cards, printed and bound in volumes, punched out on telegrams, voiced over airwaves. On Kawara’s date-related works suggest a level of remoteness and detachment in their use of data and a set-based logic of numeric and systematic languages. Abstract and serial in nature, the works describe time with a cool distance. However, Kawara’s language-objects are anything but hermetic codes: they are warm and generous spells that transport us through those very inscriptions. The devices that Kawara subscribes to—the attempted absenting of the hand in painting the sans-serif type of those beautifully endless tracts of dates; the reliance on telecommunication technologies to prescribe existence but that arrive minutes, hours, days late; the temporal nature of a voice reading out loud the dates of a calendar…

hanoi

Hanoi prides itself on its 1,000-year history and diverse mix of Chinese, French and Soviet cultural influences. It is much like a living theater, with all aspects of life played out in the streets, including eating, drinking, talking, singing, driving, dancing and fighting. The city is full of national museums, such as the Vietnam National Fine Arts Museum, the Vietnamese Women’s Museum and the Vietnam National Museum of History. However, these sites seem to only attract foreign visitors. Internationally, there is curiosity and demand for arts and culture from Vietnam and historical information around the Vietnam War, but the local people, especially the younger generations, are generally more interested in the latest Korean fashion trends or the next Hollywood blockbuster. The exception to this is the new, private Vincom Center for…

global uproar over shahidul alam’s arrest

The esteemed 63-year-old photographer, photojournalist, educator and activist Shahidul Alam was arrested on August 5. Earlier that day, Alam had appeared on Al Jazeera and openly criticized Dhaka authorities’ excessive use of force in breaking up student protests calling for improved road safety. At around 10pm on August 5, plainclothes policemen arrested Alam at his Dhaka residence. He has been charged with “spreading propaganda and false information against the government” under Section 57 of Bangladesh’s Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act 2006, which criminalizes the electronic dissemination of content that “prejudices the image of the state” and may cause “deterioration in law and order.” When Alam appeared in court on August 6, he was visibly bruised and stated that he was tortured in jail, an allegation that the police denied. If convicted,…
