Schizophrenia Taiwan 2.0

Starting in late 2013, the exhibition Schizophrenia Taiwan 2.0 introduces the work of young and emerging Taiwanese new media artists at Ars Electronica, Transmediale, Cyberfest, and Instants Video. From 2015, the exhibition will tour the USA, Canada, Argentina and Brazil. Taiwan’s schizophrenic nature will be diagnosed under the following lenses: a condensed symbol of world history, a powerhouse of the global digital economy and an ambivalent national status. Part of the world and at the same time apart from it, like a satellite, Taiwan observes, orbits, and transmits messages to this world. These messages coincide with the challenges and potential of globalization and cybernetics.
