Alternative Asian Art Network – How do we survive? 


Sharing his experience of a recent three months intensive research trip to 83 art spaces in 9 countries in South East Asia, Nozomu Ogawa discussed the “collective” activities shared among many artists in South East Asia, where organic communities share resources and networking as pragmatic survival strategies within complex socio-political situations, lacking funding for the arts. Following the trip, Ogawa founded “Ongoing Collective”, with his colleague artists, curators, musicians for seeking a new economy and strategy for being alternative.
