Outline

Contemporary Taiwanese experimental films: Screened WU Tzuan retrospective and the young artists program for a week. There were a total of 10 artists, 17 films and most of them were Japan premieres. Audiences received our original catalogues for free. The artists were not able to travel because of the pandemic, but interacted with a Japanese artist during an online event.

Streamed 5 films that deal with LGBTQ archives: also published articles, photo works and held online events, all online.The mission of the program was, before thinking of “archive,” to start thinking about the concept of history and history for LGBTQ people: how it’s been stolen from LGBTQ people and how we, LGBTQ people, can create our own. The ticket prices were set from zero yen to make them more accessible.

-Artists, guests and Staff include: Wu Tzuan, MURAOKA Yuri, KANNO Yuka, MANABE Yuri, MASUSHIO Taro, Sam ASHBY and more.
