Artists' film in Asia

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


The event is a panel discussion on artists’ moving images in Asia that is part of the festival’s industry talks that are free and open to the public.

In this session, we will explore the diverse landscapes of artists’ films in Asia from different perspectives. In an expert panel consisting of artists, curators and academics we will discuss the histories as well as the current practices of moving image art in their national, inter-regional and international contexts. As diverse as the landscape of artists’ films is, are there overarching themes or tendencies? Who are the main actors providing a platform and funding for these works? What are the collaborative initiatives and networks in the region? These are some of the questions we will discuss together with the panelists: Madiha Aijaz (Pakistan), artist; Hama Haruka, Nguyen Trinh Thi (Vietnam) artist and founder of Hanoi DocLab; Chanel Kong (Hong Kong) curator at Moving Image Museum, and Su Hui-Yu (Taiwan), artist. This an event that engages the general public and non-academic users of research with research-based knowledge to improve understanding of the field.
