Panel with Asia-Art-Activism: #MilkTeaAlliance

26 November 2020 (Thu) 2-4pm GMT

Join us in this panel discussion about digitalisation, surveillance, and milk tea!

The term "Milk Tea Alliance" is a meme that arose from the dispute between Thailand and China pundits on Twitter. This term reflects the fact that people have spent more time on the internet world since the pandemic, which has also brought additional conflict, an increased focus on public issues, and the exhibition of artworks online. These activities inevitably draw the attention of governmental authorities.

This panel will discuss the digitalisation of artworks and surveillance, and the strategies used by artists and activists towards visibility and invisibility, particularly in socially and politically charged arts projects.

A roundtable discussion with Candy ChoiGhost & JohnRuss Ligtas, and Thái Hà
