後亡國 After Our Dear Country Failed

「後亡國」
After Our Dear Country Failed

台灣特殊的國際政治處境及歷史背景,讓「亡國」成為了一種既真實卻又虛幻的經驗。真實的部分在於台灣每個世代、每個人多少都曾經歷過「亡國」邊緣的歷史事件。虛幻的是,這些歷史事件都因為命運的機遇而使台灣多次僥倖的逃過了「亡國」的命運。究竟這種長期累積的危機感,乃至於帶點已然麻痺的淡定心境,是如何構成一種特殊的社會奇觀?本次「後亡國」(又譯:在我們親愛的國家坍塌之後)除了透過追溯數位技術美學及政治控制技術來理解本土的脈絡之外,同時亦邀請國際藝術家,透過國際危機時事、機械裝置及未來想像,設法來共同拼湊出一幅「後亡國」的想像空間,並藉此理解已化身為「反烏托邦」的當下。

“Failed state”remains a real but also unreal experience of the Taiwanese due to the odd situation in the international politics and complex historical settings of Taiwan. The reality lies in the experience of Taiwanese people, from different generations, going through various historical events that pushed the state to the edge of collapse. On the other hand, these events coincidentally helped Taiwan have narrow escapes from the doom of failure, and the close calls brought a sense of unreality of the unsteady nation. From the tension of being on alert all the time to the state of being numbed and detached under the long-lasting oppression, how the collective mental states shape the unique social spectacle? After Our Dear Country Failed traced the aesthetics of digital technology and political control technology to interpret the local social context. We brought a line-up of international artists to present an imaginative space of “failed state” via illustrating the current issues and crises around the globe, employing mechanical installations, and projecting visions toward the future, and to figure out what lies in the present, as it has become a picture of dystopia.
