Lecture by the leading Taiwanese video artist Su Hui-Yu about post-war Taiwan, and his understanding of corporeity and cinema as a medium.

In his art, Su explores the connection between media, pop culture, post-colonial history of Taiwan, and everyday life. In his work, he talks about violence, dreams, body politics, memories of martial law period, interaction between reality and fantasy. Due to Su’s passion for old books and films, which always served him as creative sources, emerged the new artist’s understanding of corporeality, existence and history. In his talk, Su Hui-Yu will present his main works and will talk about practices at the intersection of art and cinema and his future projects.
