A curatorial collaboration with Alex Yong Kang Chow, a former Hong Kong student activist sentenced to prison for seven months for his political participation in the 2014 Umbrella Movement and current UC Berkeley Geography PhD student, this program brings together films, performance, and discussion that prioritize the lived experience of protesters. Stuck between its British colonial past and a future ruled by communist China, Hong Kong’s young people are taking to the streets to fight for the autonomy and democracy they were promised. Attitudes to resistance, protest strategy, and tactics differ between generations and the leaderless demonstrators themselves. How do they manage the nuances of building a democratic movement? How are they using creative strategies in the arts, with technology, and in the streets as crucial communication tactics?
Jeffrey Hou, Professor of landscape architecture, University of Washington as well as local and Hong Kong-based poet activists.
