This publication is produced two years after the biennial exhibition of the same title held in Taipei Fine Arts Museum from September 2012 to January 2013.

'The Taipei Biennial 2012 featured 45 artists and art groups. Additionally, it hosted six "mini-museums" at which individual curators or curatorial teams gathered artists of their own choosing. The exhibition as a whole attempted to reflect the many problems and processes of modern history through an Asian perspective and to explore the global, even the universal, historical experience with the unfettered attitude of contemporary art. 

This journal is an archive of documentation of the exhibitions from the beginning to the end, allowing them to live in another form.' - excerpted from foreword.
