This event has ended.
“Asian Protocols” refers to various conventions related to certain official and private matters either in society generally or in people’s personal lives. When used in different situations, the word “protocol” can have a variety of meanings, such as a diplomatic procedure, an agreement and/or a document stipulating such an agreement, a system of customs and rules operating in society, the rules and methods regulating a scientific or artistic field, or the procedural methods and rules governing computer-based telecommunications, etc. These protocols encompass a great variety of procedures, and according to Muntadas, they have the power to define and control society and to influence it in many kinds of ways.
This exhibition is an attempt to reveal visually some of the similarities and differences as well as the conflicts that exist between three countries that are located so near to and yet so far away from each other.namely Japan, China and Korea.by researching the protocols operating in each of these countries and by creating installation works as a means of assembling images collected in various places within these countries. The first exhibition of this series was held at the Total Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul in 2014, and following the opening of the present exhibition in Tokyo in March 2016, a similar exhibition will be held in Beijing in the near future. These exhibitions are being developed through collaboration with various researchers in each country.
