In “How Asia Art Archive Works,” the first talk in the series of Questions about Asian Contemporary Art Research, the speaker Anthony Yung explained that one of the research directions at Asia Art Archive (AAA) is “art ideologies and practices beyond the traditionally defined borders of nation.” In recent years, the communities of contemporary arts and thought in Asia have devoted numerous researches, seminars, exhibitions and performances, and publications to highlighting the diversity within the East World and initiating dialogues among different societies in Asia. Efforts are being made to break the still prevailing East-West dualistic framework, unearth the previously covered and neglected original culture resources in Asia, and renew the meaning of the modernity of both China and the whole East World. Inter-Asia School (IAS) is playing a critical role in these efforts.

IAS is an international civil organization dedicated to creating a critical new platform of dialogues among Asian intellectuals and exploring new modes of knowledge production for the staging and formation of the Asian community of thought. It aims to break the long-lasting barriers of interactions and the predicaments of thought engendered by colonialism, wars and the Cold War, with a hope to bring about solidarity and cooperation among intellectuals in Asia.

In this talk, IAS’s researcher Liang Jie will introduce the organization by focusing on the following questions: What are the basic consensuses among Asian intellectuals regarding Asian culture? After its continuous development and adjustment over these years, what are the research priorities of IAS? And what lessons have been learned in organizing cross-cultural dialogues at IAS? Why is IAS planning to focus on publications and its own database establishment in the coming days? How can the communities of contemporary arts and thought in Asia interact through IAS? How can art museums, higher education institutions and individual researchers collaborate with IAS? As IAS and RAM are both dedicated to promoting the development of Asian contemporary arts, what are their shared challenges?

在“提问亚洲当代艺术研究”系列第一讲亚洲艺术文献库(AAA)专场讲座中,我们讨论到 AAA 所专注的研究范围之一是“超越传统定义中国家边界的艺术观念及行动”。近年来,亚洲当代艺术界和思想界通过一系列的研究、会议、展演、出版等,探索东方内部疆域、开启东方内部对话,打破至今犹是主导的“东西”二元框架,以便发掘被压抑和被遗忘的本土文化资源,更新对中国和东方世界的现代性的了解。其中,亚际书院(Inter-Asia School)扮演了重要角色。
