Outsider Factory, “+8 Time Zone”: The Research Project for Oral Histories & Community Art in Three Towns of Archipelago Southeast Asia (Talk in Taipei)
In 2016, Outsiders Factory curate a research project to 3 towns in Archipelago Southeast Asia: Davao in South Philippines’ Mindanao Island, Kota Kinabalu in East Malaysia’s Sabah State and Makassar in Indonesia’s Sulawesi Island. These 3 towns are far away from internationally recognized capitals and big cities. However, these 3 towns are the incubator of rich local culture and full of potential for contemporary art development. These 3 towns are not only belong to the same time zone, but also near to each other on the map. However, because 3 different colonial powers occupy these 3 towns, therefore they divide into 3 different historical paths. Outsiders Factory use this project as a chance to gather young curators, artists and historian to visit these 3 archipelago towns, for research their culture, modern histories and artistic communities. Outsiders Factory also look forward to use this research project as the fundaments to develop the inter-insular exhibition in the near future.
