Bridging the geographical distance between East Asia and Eastern Europe, 'Taiwan Calling' features a variety of work by 29 Taiwanese artists in Budapest, Hungary. In addition to bringing Eastern specificities of artistic language and cultural traits to their audience in Europe, this exhibition attempts to investigate the construction of 'Taiwanese identity' by presenting the individualistic paths undertaken by this new generation of artists, given considerable cultural influence of China and Japan over the island country. The artists respond to the political and social circumstances at home by centring their works on language, position, identity, migration, local and global economy, and the possibilities of expressing tradition in the present.

This catalogue Taiwan Calling: Elusive Island documents one of the 'Taiwan Calling' exhibitions held at Ludwig Museum - Museum of Contemporary Art from December 2010 to March 2011, focusing on artists born after World War Two and their perspectives towards issues of history, society, ethnicity, politics and culture.

With two essays, artist notes and explanatory texts in trilingual. Artists' biographies also included.



’臺灣響起’連繫了地理位置上遙不相及的臺灣和匈牙利,於布達佩斯兩大美術館展示二十九位臺灣藝術家的作品。除了突顯東方獨特的藝術語言與文化特色,是次展覧更企圖透過一群富有個人色彩的新生代藝術家,去探討臺灣-一個處於中國和日本影響力下發展的島國,如何以藝術建立獨立的民族身份。藝術家從探索語言、身份、移民、地方及全球經濟,以及如何宏揚傳統等議題,去回應國家的當代政治與社會現實。

臺灣響起:難以名狀之島一書紀綠了’臺灣響起’的兩個展覧之一,集中釋述於二次世界大戰後出生的年輕藝術家對本土歷史、社會、民族性、政治及文化的觀感。該展覧設於路德維格現代美術館,展期為二0一0年十二月至二0一一年三月。

本書附有兩篇論文,藝術家註釋及作品介紹,並提供三個語言版本。附帶藝術家簡介。
