2018, Lecture performance / booklet
Willimann/Arai in collaboration with Nac Hijiyu and Shang Chiao Li
Hosted by TreeTreeTree Person Residency, Taroko National Park/TW
Willimann/Arai invited their Truku host and researcher Nac Hijiyu and Taiwanese scriptwriter and translator Shang Chiao Li to contribute their personal perspectives on the territory of Taroko National Park in the form of a text in their mother tongue, which Willimann/Arai interwove with their own perspectives. As an attempt to map their common, violent history, this „kaleidoscope of gazes“ was presented as a collective, multilingual lecture performance. The text was later published in a book, along with a collection of historical maps of the area of Taroko National Park from Chinese, Han-Taiwanese, American, European and Japanese perspectives.
