Artistic residency has turn into commonly followed in Western international locations whereas only in the near past having develop into well known and well-supported inside of Taiwan. This e-book explores the demanding situations that this manner of artwork perform confronted in modern Taiwan from the revocation of Martial legislations in 1987 to the 2000s—arguably some of the most interesting classes within the sociocultural historical past of the island. Case reviews exhibit what's at stake politically, traditionally, and socially in artists’ endeavours to offer form to a feeling of Taiwanese identity.

Despite the superiority of artists engaged in social matters in today’s global and the indisputable contributions of inventive residency to modern artwork perform, little literature or scholarly examine has been carried out at the useful, conceptual, and ideological facets of artist residency. quite often, it's perceived in very slender phrases, overlooking particular or hidden problems with localism, nationalism and globalization. If creative place of abode did certainly emerge from the unconventional pursuits of the Nineteen Sixties and 70s within the Western world—and specially Britain—then this publication argues that the modern sociocultural context of Taiwan demands redefined, culturally-specific versions of residency.

The precarious geo-political scenario of Taiwan has made problems with cultural identity—tackled through artists and successive governments alike—very delicate. a brand new style of creative place of dwelling in Taiwan could suggest that artists concerned from no matter what cultural historical past function as engaging interpreters; their roles wouldn't be constrained to mirroring tradition and society. those artists-in-residence might give a contribution to cultural awakening through providing methods of negotiating creatively with otherness, and this for the sake of a higher social existence and shared id.
