The upcoming exhibition at WMA, ‘Can’t touch this!’ is facilitated by visual artist Angela Su. It was conceived as an extension to ‘Faces under Masks’, a book project initiated by journalist-turned urbanist Chloe Lai. Three visual artists, Siu Wai Hang, Yim Sui Fong and Kenji Wong Wai Kin were invited to create visual responses to the exhibition.
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.
