As an Art Worker, How Do We Organize Ourselves?

The project will be three-fold. 1. As an artist, how should we work within the contemporary art world? How should we organize ourselves? 2. Among the public funding, market mechanism, and self-sustainability, what is the other possibility for artists? 3. If sharing and co-working is an alternative plan for artists, what kind of practical experience can the previous and current modes of sharing offer the artists? These questions serve as the theoretical context and basis; and then, we should further focus on Taiwan’s situation and rephrase the questions. In local context, how do artists organize themselves? How is the “identity of an artist” built? The project takes contemporary dance as its primary target, and then extending to (general) fields of performing art and visual art.
