2021-1:A Guide to Survive Online Video Games, Fandom and Social Media

Project report by Kong Tsz Lik, Piotr Skora, Feeza Vasudeva

指導老師 : Prof. Lawrence Yang

Abstract: In 2014, the cybermovement #GamerGate made ripples in gaming industry,while bursting the myth of diversity in gaming culture. Through the analysis of the movement, the article highlights how #GamerGate became a rallying point around the identity – “gamer” – against women and their allies who were pushed into identification against it. This article, therefore, details some of the hateful rhetoric, death and rape threats, hacking, doxing, and deception campaigns conducted against women in the videogame industry. The article also highlights how there has never been a singular gamer identity. Nonetheless, GamerGate did result in condensation of the identity of the gamer, as many fled from where it while others flocked towards it. Finally, the article asserts that, following Deleuze and Guttari, #GamerGate realigned and divided the identity of the gamer to encapsulate a form of microfascism.

2021-1: Deterritorialized identities: Construction or (De)construction of memories, identity, and culture in exile.

Project report by  Nguyen Thi Trang, Monika Verma , Kahlan A. Alradhi 

指導老師 : Prof. Joyce C.H.Liu


This project analysis workers and refugees who have migrated and taken refuge in other countries. When they come to host countries, faced with difficulties and challenges, they are always in a dilemma, whether they should rebuild their identities or bury their identities to integrate with the community. In the opposite aspect, this research also shows the challenges of identities in receiving countries when facing waves of new migrants and reufgees. This joint-research project consists of three parts, undertaken by three researchers. Nguyen Thi Trang focuses on "Politicized collective identity: Rethinking of the Vietnamese movement against the French colonial government in the Pacific Islands. Monika Verma highlights the issue "The Rohingya crisis: Floating populations' persecution/massacre-related memories in exile." And the last one, Kahlan A. Alradhi interested in the theme "The issue of identity between expatriate workers and citizens in Gulf Arab countries."

2021-1: Shaping Enclaves: Mobility, Sovereignty, and Exception in Capitalist Frontiers

Project report by Jonathan S. Parhusip, Li Qi , Chen Yanyu , Chen Yang

指導老師 : Prof. Yen Lin Tsai

With the expansion of state developmentalism and global capitalism, many periphery zones and communities emerged within state borders, such as special economic zones or migrant enclaves. Spurred on by the inspiring issues of 'alternative sovereignty' and capitalist frontier, our collaborative project titled "Shaping Enclaves: Mobility, Sovereignty, and Exception in Capitalist Frontiers" examines various enclave practices in Taiwan, Japan, China, and Cambodia. Drawing on four case studies in mentioned areas, our group is trying to map how different mediating actors draw political and social boundaries within the enclaves and how periphery zones are connected with the state and the broader capitalist world.

2020-2:亞際自組木刻版畫系列 ii :集體協作、著作權與藝術資本

Inter-Asia Self-organised Woodcut Collectives Series II: Collaboration, Authorship and Art Capital

Project report by Lee Chun Fung, Duong Pham, Li-Ding

指導老師 : Prof. Joyce C.H. Liu




本期小誌序言由編輯部共同編寫,題為〈有關集體協作、著作權與資本的問 題〉(Questions about Collaboration, Authorship and the Capital),主要整理策劃小組的 理念和問題意識。

第二篇文章由李丁撰寫〈複製性的悖論:藝術作品語境中的木刻版 畫〉(The Paradox of Reproducibility: Woodcut as Artwork),

本文將會以現代木刻的歷 史語境為背景,嘗試討論「複製性」對現代版畫創作的意義與影響。

在現代版畫這個 異於以往藝術形式的創作手段面前,藝術家的定義有何變化?現代版畫既打破了人們對 精英藝術的固化認知,又重塑著屬於版畫自身的歷史語境(即屬於「人民的藝 術」)。

那麼,回到當代我們又該如何理解版畫的複製性?版畫在當代藝術市場又扮 演著怎樣的角色,是解構著藝術品市場的邏輯,還是透過新的社會情境發揮其傳播信 息的效用?

本文將嘗試透過現代版畫的歷史語境與當代版畫的發展概況,對上述問題 做進一步呈現。



2020-2:Land Acquisition: Law, Conflict, and Politics in Colonial and Contemporary Asia

Project report by Kahlan A. Alradhi, Monika Verma, Trang Nguyen

Advisor: Prof. Joyce C.H. Liu


Since ancient times, acquiring lands has been a fundamental point in the formation of society and history. In this project, we try to shed light on this phenomenon from a contemporary perspective through three different angles. In the first paper, we present a study of Indochina's land acquisition by the French occupation. The paper reviews the procedures for enacting laws to own, concede, and alienate the land by French occupation.


As a result, the local population turned from owners to workers serving the interests of the French. The second paper reviews the impact of the acquisition of land for investment (in Myanmar), which negatively and even bloodily affects the lives of the local population and may lead to sectarian conflicts (Buddhist - Islamic). Often the victims of this conflict are the most vulnerable ethnic minorities in society (in this case, Muslim Rohingyas), while it is primarily a process of acquiring lands for the sake of economic and political interests.


The paper explains how law facilitates State, military, and private companies to acquire the lands. The third paper examines the phenomenon of the acquisition of agricultural lands (in poor countries by rich countries) in order to provide food security. This phenomenon has expanded in recent decades due to many circumstances that have contributed to an increase in the demand for food. The paper introduces the topic through the Arab Gulf countries' experience in the acquisition of agricultural lands in both Egypt and Ethiopia. The paper attempts to highlight the opportunities and risks that may result from the acquisition of agricultural land in order to achieve food security.

The development of contemporary woodblock printing collectives in Asia is different from artworks that serve the institutions, market or personal collections, to a certain extent it can be regarded as the “alternative narrative” of our time. As the Inter-Asia affiliations have taken place across East Asia and Southeast Asia, they formed a self- organized network among these collectives, which not only have aroused concern about the deprivation of the underprivileged, but also underscored the artistic stance of co-production. Other than the mainstream individualistic aesthetic mode of production, such collaborative art-making envisions “politics” through art. 

There are five articles selected for this zine, they are (1) "The Left-Wing Spirit of Indonesian Artist Collective Taring Padi" by Chen Wei-Lun, (2) "Collaboration or Social Mobilization? The Historical Context of Gotong-Royong and its Politics" by Krystie Ng, (3) "How to Sustain a DIY Artist Collective? In the case of A3BC" by Ai KANO, (4) "To Exist Like a Mystery': The Dynamic of Trans-local Cultural Activism Network in East Asia" by LEE Chun Fung and (5) "From 'Popularization' to 'De- popularization': Rethink Woodcut Printing in the Context of Chinese Contemporary Art" by LI Ding. 

We attempt to map the trajectory of self-organized woodcut collectives, and discuss on the possibility for contemporary art practitioners and local people to establish a network that maintains both localized and trans-border dimensions. The practice of these collectives accentuates the participatory process based on ethical principles – equity among participants, respect for differences and democratic decision-making – and hence rethinks “autonomy”. More importantly, we hope to contextualize these empirical cases in the framework of globalization and neoliberalism to rethink the political significance of contemporary collective production. Indeed, the cases of woodblock printing collective are yet to be simply marked as a return to collectivism. The politics of collaborative art have to be scrutinized under the micro-perspective as well as the macro one, in other words, the historical and socio-political conditions. 

Through case studies in our articles and network mapping, we hope to henceforth deliberate on “an alternative route” of the Inter-Asia autonomous cultural network.

2019-1:Socio-Environmental Conflicts in Asia: Insights from EJAtlas



Project report by Lungani Hlongwa, Fernan Talamayan, and Weisyun Chen

指導老師:  陳奕麟 教授


Abstract: With increasing energy demands, the need for social infrastructure, and the neoliberalization of the environment, socio-environmental conflicts have increased dramatically in recent decades.  In advocating for environmental justice and community rights, our collaborative research project titled “Socio-Environmental Conflicts in Asia: Insights from EJAtlas” examined different socio-environmental conflicts in South, Southeast, and East Asia. With the help of EJAtlas, a project that catalogues global environmental conflicts, the papers generated by this research project focused on the proliferation of resistance against projects negatively impact people’s livelihoods. Of particular interest among the topics examined is the social mobilization of different actors and the tactics employed, as the researchers charted the actions and activities within the identified sites of struggle. The papers examined a number of factors and actors mediating the struggles such as affects, politics, media and the state. These play a significant role in determining the course and outcome of the struggles.
