The Ocean After Nature considers the ocean as a site reflecting the ecological, cultural, political, and economic realities of a globalized world through the work of twenty artists and collectives. These internationally established and emerging artists explore new ways of representing the seascape as a means to identify and critique the various interrelated and chaotic systems of power, such as land-sea divides, the circulation of people and goods, and the vulnerabilities of our ecosystems.
This exhibition in itself represents the achievements of two projects, namely the thematic lecture series at the 2016 Praxis School and Till We Have Faces, both were led by Huang Sun-Quan, a renowned social activist and cultural researcher.

Welcome to the fourth edition of the White Man Film Festival, where we focus on films and videos for, by, and about the white man.
The White Man Film Festival is not simply a festival or simply about film, it is more importantly an idea – an idea to contemplate, to consider, and to mourn.
The White Man Film Festival celebrates the diversity of the white man as he treads between knowledge and ignorance.
This festival is not one based on intolerance or bigotry of any sort, nor is it based on love or generosity.
Our theme for the fourth edition of the White Man Film Festival is:
DON’T BE AFRAID TO HATE!

The Cube Project is pleased to present Cambodian artist Vandy Rattana’s first solo exhibition in Taiwan, titled Working-Through: Vandy Rattana and His Ditched Footages, curated by Fang-Tze Hsu. Taking Rattana’s poetry writing, translating, and publishing as a point of departure, the exhibition juxtaposes these newly established creative exercises after his relocation to Taiwan with his practices of image-making since 2009. The exhibition not only examines Vandy’s philosophical continuum between journalistic photography and an experimental approach towards filmmaking but also concerns his re-contextualization of political reality regarding the mainstream memory politics of the post-Khmer Rouge era. As a way to situate the internal connections between those who have been muted by the grand narrative of history and the collective sensorial agency of the Mass, Working-Through delves into Vandy’s psychological cartography, reified by the artist’s ceaseless revisiting of long-forgotten historical sites.
