  • About the Talk

    The artist Francis Alÿs, together with Yuko Hasegawa, curator of the exhibition “Francis Alÿs: La dépense”, went on a field trip in Inner Mongolia in 2017, and paid a visit to the Aoluguya Ewenki tribe in Genhe of Hulunbuir. Ewenki hunters, having lived for generations in the mysterious Aoluguya forest, dropped off their shotguns and walked out of the forest in 2003, launching a massive migration and relocation. A series of dramatic incidents that happened thereafter have drawn extensive attention and inspiring discussions.

    Xie Yuanyuan, Associate Professor at the Department of Sociology, China Agricultural University, used to engage in long-time field investigations in Aoluguya, and published influential books in both Chinese and English. In this talk, she will, through the case study of Aoluguya Ewenki's ecological migration, explore the relevance between the responsibility of civilization and culture, bringing us a different cultural perspective and inspiring new thinking.
