Each year Taipei Dangdai’s Ideas Forum acts as a platform for creative ideas and thought leadership, returning in 2022 with a curated selection of talks with renowned cultural figures from Taiwan and beyond. This highly multidisciplinary program culminates over the fair’s duration, featuring art industry experts as well as recognized public figures from literature, music, and philosophy.

Ideas Forum

For 2022, the theme of the Ideas Forum will think through the “Escape into Understanding,” the different gears that we are asked to shift through as we use lanes for dramatically different speeds in the world today: the high speed of digital communication as well as the low gears of locality that are cultivated by phenomena like lengthy quarantine policies. The title is drawn from media theorist Marshall McLuhan, who warned that “To high-speed change no adjustment is possible … we must escape into understanding.”

Taipei Platform

Returning for a second year, Taipei Platform consists of collaborations with partners in media and the non-profit sector, with a focus on experimental interactive events. Workshops will be led by Walking Grass Agriculture, ARTouch, CANS, HAGAI, La Vie, SOYL, Initium Media, OFF-SITE and FENKO Catalysis Chamber.
