This book looks back at the community cultural development work led by Mok Chiuyu and his comrades since the 1970s. It demonstrates the collective power of the oppressed realised through art actions. The book also features Mok's recent project 'May Be Long Hair, May Be Ernesto Che Guevara' and his research trip to Cuba with his group. Articles by other social activists and a chronology of the art events in which he participated are included.

Performance Art

The selected publications on this page present the varied ways artists, curators, and researchers experiment with performance. For some, performance is a way to defy the commodification of art, a physical intervention into dominant narratives, or an enactment that eludes state control. Performance may be a protest that takes place in the theatre, on the streets, in a café, or in a private setting. For others, it is experimentation with the form: a transformation, appropriation, or expansion of dance, theatre, and film.
