The Confusion of Contemporary Images

December 25, 2021

“Creativity and psychosis often go hand in hand. Or, for that matter, genius and madness... Sometimes, people find patterns or meaning where there aren’t any.”

This dialogue from the series The Queens Gambit reminds us of the confusion brought about by contemporary art. Is art an existential nothingness, a misunderstanding by the author, or a message that blocks the threshold of perception? This lecture will be led by YC Chen, the director of pon ding bookstore, and artist I-Hsuen Chen and Yo Yang, to discuss the narrative structure of contemporary photography and video, as well as the influence of society on visual culture.
