This series of forums takes a look at current research into the history of photography in Taiwan and Asia, focusing on the development trajectory of photography in Asia, the contemporary significance of the history of photography, and the creative narrative perspective of the historical treatise on photography. A multifaceted reflection of the interregional geographic and historical links serves as an expanded reference in the understanding of photography history in Taiwan and Asia. At the same time, the forum will facilitate the establishment of international exchanges on research perspectives, experiences and resources.
These forums will begin with the post-war development of photography in East Asia. Guest speakers from Japan, South Korea and Taiwan will share their research, done through a multi-faceted historical framework and research writing strategies, and talk about the development process and cultural phenomena of Asian photography in the post-war era. They will also put forward their reflexive speculations on “what is the history of photography” and the methodology of research in photography history.
