Between – Picturing 1950-1960s Taiwan 間:臺灣五六十年代面影

Exhibition

Politics has had complex effects on the cultural life of Taiwan in the twentieth century. These forty-four works, curated from the collection of the National Museum of History (Taipei), offer subtle observations of Taiwan in the 1950s and 1960s, from the perspectives of fifteen artists and photographers, as fresh and curious witnesses to lives in flux.

Embodying democracy in Chinese thought

ANU China Seminar Series

In addition, many students have developed their friendships and careers around their activism, while participation has become a fashionable pastime amongst young people.
