The talk brings together presentations from three participating artists, TT Takemoto , Madeleine Lim, and Heesoo Kwon to reflect on the theme of the “Queer Futurity”. With moving images being their main medium, the artists will share how they express themselves as well as the possibilities of queerness via their artistic practises. From diving into historical footages, documenting the queer movements, to creating a metaverse, these presentations aim to reflect the different female desires and the longing of queer existences. The talk also invites scholar Dr. Denise Tang, curator Hoi Leung and Hong Kong artist Kalen Lee to further unpack the possibilities for persuading a nonbinary future.

Founder of The Salt Yard Photobook Store, Dustin Shum recommends ‘Fish Story’ by the leftist photography theorist and artist Allan Sekula. A deep dive spanning Marxism, globalisation, ecosystems, and our relationship with the ocean, it inspired Dustin to ponder on the Belt & Road initiative.
Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of America’s 9/11 terrorist attack. This year, as usual, there are memorial events at the base of the Twin Towers. But, the coronavirus pandemic has made them less visible. The younger generations are less aware of the incident. We bring you this book, War Primer 2, which revisits America’s 18-year war on terrorism, as well as the rise of the internet, and its impact on the way we understand and think about war.
