LIN Chuan-Kai（LIBERA WORK-GANG）
Founded in 2018, the LIBERA WORK-GANG is comprised of like-minded artists, researchers, educators and the masses. Concerns over the dissidents in the martial law period serve as the core philosophy behind its operation. The demise of these dissidents implies not only the disappearance of their physical bodies in contemporary memories, but also the loss of a paragon capable of galvanizing us to care about social issues and public affairs. In other words, we lost the “soul.” As a result, the practice of the LIBERA WORK-GANG is twofold: (1) to allow these figures to reappear in the contemporary world; and (2) to help contemporary people muster their energy and prevent them from underestimating their objectively greater strength due to their subjective conservativeness. Using such a two-pronged strategy, we attempt to reconstruct the “soul” of contemporary people in a bottom-up and horizontally connected manner.
