Schizophrenia Taiwan 2.0

23 October – 2 November 2014

Schizophrenia Taiwan 2.0 introduces works of young and emerging Taiwanese new media artists at Ars Electronica, Transmediale, Cyberfest, and Instant Video. From 2015, the exhibition plans to tour in U.S.A, Canada, Argentina, and Brazil. Taiwan’s schizophrenic nature will be diagnosed under the following lenses: a condensed symbol of world history, a powerhouse for global digital economy and an ambivalent national status. Part of the world and at the same time apart from it, like a satellite, Taiwan observes, orbits, and transmits messages to this world. These messages coincide the challenges and potential of globalization and cybernetics.
