Founded by students, our motivation comes from “the urgency to take measures against the limitations coming from the misconceptions of Asian cultures in the Gerrit Rietveld Academie & Sandberg Instituut”. To take our first actions, we would like to introduce artists from a broader range of Asian cultures and backgrounds. This aim comes from a pure will to integrate artists of diversities and to broaden the repetitive names and works encountered in our institutions. Though a fragile step, it is our intention to acquaint each other of the boundless possibilities of these works without the imposed lense of cultural difference and exoticism.
With Jun Zhang, Kim Kokosky Deforchaux, Qiaochu Guo & May Adadol Ingawanij.
