08 Taipei Biennial

A World of Proximities - Globalisation timeline, wall drawing.

08 Taipei Biennale opened on September 11th, 2008. This already inauspicious date was marked by the arrival of a typhoon which lashed the opening night with a windy storm and ensured the gallery was closed for the first few days of the exhibition. The exhibition was curated by Manray Hsu and Vasif Kortun with a parallel project within the exhibition, One World Where Many Worlds Fit, curated by Oliver Ressler. The exhibition as a whole was centred on globalisation and it fragmentary, political and decentering aspects: the project by Oliver Ressler, within this overall framework, focused on the counter-globalisation movement. For this exhibition Oliver and I exhibited our film What Would It Mean to Win? and I produced a wall drawing A World of Proximities - Globalisation Timeline.
