MITTing: Art and Cultural Network Forum 緬印台泰文藝交流論壇

時間:2014年2月8 - 9日
地點:URS 21中山創意基地(台北市中山區民生東路一段21號)

主辦單位:打開-當代藝術工作站、jiandyin (Jiradej and Pornpilai Meemalai)
參與者:打開-當代藝術工作站、jiandyin (Jiradej and Pornpilai Meemalai)、Moe Satt (Beyond Pressure) 、Leonhard Bartolomeus (Ruangrupa)、Helmi Hardian and Debrina Tedjawidjaja (Waft Lab)、Narawan Pathomvat (The Reading Room)、高森信男(奧賽德工廠)、張正(四方報)、鄭美雅(台北當代藝術中心)



MITTing: Art and Cultural Network Forum緬印台泰文藝交流論壇的舉辦作為一個新的文化生產啓動器,有兩個工作目標:其一是回顧過去我們文化交流工作的方法學,並尋找新的生產載具和形式;其二在於啓動我們對於MITTing的對話與想像,討論其對於未來區域性網絡發展的意義與可能性。藉由讓每次的MITTing / meeting都成為一個生產現場,我們將自己放置在現在進行式的行動之間,在第一階段共同編寫出新的語彙與字典,讓自身成為社會介媒,以獨立且集體的參與度來活化區域間藝術的發展。藉由讓每次交流都成為一種具有生產性的聚合,MITT將作為一個動詞,在未來幾年內扮演區域內藝術交流的關鍵角色。

Curated by Esther Lu

MITT stands for a temporary art and cultural network among artist initiatives from Myanmar, Indonesia, Taiwan and Thailand is a verb to cluster collective efforts in imagining regional dialogues and exchanges. To reflect and explore our mobility and operations conditioned in the neo-liberalism global economy and our local political contexts, the meeting of MITT is an opportunity to examine how the autonomous mobility of art practitioners could transgress the existing boundaries and cultivate common grammars for the future cultural production.

MITT is proposed not as a fixed organization, but a connection, a gathering and an invitation for friendship in our shared region. It is also an action that transcribes our desire for charting new meeting points among ourselves beyond the direct influence of much bigger cultural mechanisms, art market and globalization. This meeting shall reflect a new critical tendency for small-scale artist initiatives around the region to contribute and construct the space of agonism with multitudes, and produce a shared institutional landscape rooted from and identified with the region that would help us all to generate an alternative art system of our own, economy of circulation, and new cultural currency and commons for artistic practices.

MITTing: Art and Cultural Network Forum is organized as a processor to meet two aims: a) reviewing our cultural exchange methodology and seek for new vehicles and forms of production; b) opening dialogues and imaginations on what MITTing is and could be as a regional network for the future. With every MITTing / meeting becomes a site of production, we launch ourselves in the present action for growing our new vocabulary and dictionary together in the first phase, make social agents out of ourselves and enrich the development of regional art with individual and collective participations.
