Asia in Transition: Representation and Identity

Symposium

Flyer of Asia in Transition Symposium

This was the fourth international symposium on art organized by the Asia Center since the inaugural event in 1994, and the first in the 21st century. By moving beyond the “West-versus-Asia” dichotomy, the question of how to define Asia was discussed alongside, as a starting point, the question of whether or not it is possible for people living in Asia to form an identity as “Asians” themselves. In an attempt to approach this topic from various perspectives, the panelists comprised experts at the forefront of not only the visual arts but also the performing arts and film studies as well as philosophy, history, sociology, and cultural studies.
