Contemporary Taiwanese Art is defined in this course as the art of Taiwan since the 1980s. The 1980s was a crucial transformative period in Taiwan's history when the island underwent major social and political changes. Art as part of this transformation was fully engaged in reshaping the images of Taiwan, revealing moment-to-moment social reconstruction. With internationalization policies and the effects of globalization, the island has undergone further rapid and dramatic transformations since the 2000s. These changes are also revealed in works by younger generations of artists. In this research seminar, participants will select research topics at the beginning of the semester as their final research paper projects, and through weekly meetings, we will refine and delve into each selected topic deeply.
