The starting point of the research project is to encourage artists to look for questions of Bangka in Wanhua regarding issues such as surveying local history and the evolution of society and the environment.
Bangka is the oldest district of Taipei, so history is the primary concern. Bangka is built on the banks of the Tamsui River and is home to a diverse range of activities: there is textile trading and garment manufacturing, as well as a night market with offerings from ancient traditions, both Chinese and from the island itself.
With this project, each artist proposed his/her own though to define quality and the way he/she would like to present it. Each artist's work materialized in different media is engaged in critical historiographies of colonialism, contemporary capitalism, and related social imaginaries.
