Benefiting from technological advancements, 21st-century cinema has witnessed the emergence of new practices and theoretical speculations in the realm of art. Among them, the relationship between film and art museums is particularly significant. The revisiting of Taiwan’s film history by the new generation of video artists in Taiwan can be seen as representative of this trend. At the same time, it has sparked contemplation within the field of Taiwan’s film historiography on the potential of interdisciplinary imagery.

Through the Lens of Cultural Icons:
Translocal Relations, Community Building, and Shared Experiences

Helena Wu University of British Columbia  Helena.Wu@ubc.ca

How does a place or an object become a cultural icon? What do cultural icons tell us about our relationship with places and objects in the city? This talk will explore the thing agency and the place-making power of cultural icons by examining the (trans)formation and the cultural reverberation of selected icons from Hong Kong. In order to unfold interactions and intersectionalities in/as relations, the talk will trace the cultural trajectories embedded in the actor-network of thing, place and body in the textual and material worlds. As a whole, this will enable us to better understand the undermined and the underrepresented, human and nonhuman, and uncover the community building potential in shared cultural experiences.
