MINOUK LIM

SEEING THE SOUNDS by Andrew Maerkle — "Music is not immaterial, but it is molecularized based on territory, as with bird calls. It makes boundaries and is in turn made by the boundaries, which I see as a kind of self-collapse. This point of self-collapse is what interests me: where one needs the other but cannot be differentiated from the other at the same time."

TANIA BRUGUERA AND MEIRO KOIZUMI

AFTER "IN DEFENSE OF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION — “We really, really, really hope that they will reopen. I was telling Meiro that for the first time in my career, over my many experiences of censorship, I feel there is a chance for the situation to be solved, and that maybe the Aichi Triennale could be a symbol to the world for how to deal with this kind of situation successfully.”View More >

AICHI TRIENNALE 2019 ARTIST STATEMENTS

The closure of “After ‘Freedom of Expression?'” at Aichi Triennale 2019 has set off a chain reaction of responses from artists in the exhibition, beginning with requests by Minouk Lim and Park Chan-kyong for the withdrawal of their works from the Triennale submitted on August 3, the same day as the announcement of the closure. Many of the Triennale participants are still considering what actions to take, and how they can stand up for freedom of expression. Some are acting in groups, others individually. This page has been established to document the statements that accompany their actions.View More >

KOKI TANAKA: A DELAYED STATEMENT ON THE REFRAMING OF MY WORK

The problem behind the closing of “After ‘Freedom of Expression?’” was initially an operational problem of “risk management.” But now I think the situation is gradually sliding into a problem of self-censorship by Aichi governor Hideaki Omura and artistic director Daisuke Tsuda in the name of “safety.” To say that establishing a review committee will lead to the speedy reopening of “After ‘Freedom of Expression?’” is just pretense — or indeed a stalling device.

AICHI TRIENNALE ARTISTS OPEN SANATORIUM

We hereby present the temporary artist-run space Sanatorium. “Curating is curing,” writes Boris Groys in his book Art Power. “It is not a coincidence that the word ‘curator’ is etymologically related to ‘cure.’” While there is no curator here, in the spirit of the root meaning of curation, we are operating Sanatorium as a “prescription” for the situation we currently find ourselves in.View More >

IN DEFENSE OF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION

We, the undersigned artists participating in the Aichi Triennale (2019), condemn the decision to close a full section of the exhibition as an unacceptable act of censorship. The section titled “After ‘Freedom of Expression?’”, a special project of the Aichi Triennale, was closed indefinitely to the public on August 3rd due to political pressure from the State as well as pressure from anonymous sources threatening to take violent and terrorist actions unless the works in question were removed from the exhibition.View More >
