Event description

Description

How do you live in a disappearing city? In this talk, researcher and writer En Liang Khong will explore the political and artistic legacy of Hong Kong’s ‘Umbrella Revolution’, as the city-state enters an era of unprecedented identity crises and (self-)censorship. From the Legislative Council through to film theatres, the politics and culture of Hong Kong are drenched in a profound anxiety over the future. Beginning with artworks that emerged during the 2014 democracy protests, through to recent exhibitions that traverse issues of national identity, En Liang Khong traces artistic production in Hong Kong as it is caught up in a ‘culture of disappearance’.

The talk will be followed by Chinese tea tasting experience provided by our partners, Proper Tea.
