Chia-Wei Hsu - Shorts

An evening on the work of the Taiwanese artist Chia-Wei Hsu, whose work is featured in Eye’s exhibition A Tale of Hidden Histories. The Taiwanese film researcher Chia-Wei Tung will introduce selected short films by Chia-Wei Hsu.

The Taiwanese artist Chia-Wei Hsu (b. 1983) examines the cultural history and geopolitics of Asia. He tells forgotten stories as a way of investigating Asian history, important aspects of which are myths and legends. He acknowledges that it is impossible to accurately interpret the past, which is why his work balances between objective and subjective reality.

A recurring subject in his work is the history of the exiled army of the Kuomintang, the anti-communist party that fought in the Chinese Civil War. In 1949, after the Communist Party had won the war and Mao Zedong had founded the People’s Republic of China, the Kuomintang members and military retreated to Taiwan, Burma and Thailand.

A number of Hsu’s short films will be screened this evening. They will be introduced by the Taiwanese film researcher Chia-Wei Tung.
