ASEF culture360 is pleased to announce a new media partnership with Borak Art Series 2015, organised by My Performing Arts Agency (MyPaa) in collaboration with the Georgetown Festival in Penang, Malaysia on 29-30 August 2015. This year, Malaysia’s primary regional networking platform for creative practitioners and business leaders from around the world is taking place in Penang, Malaysia, to enable participants to immerse in the glocal’s best arts and culture.

In the words of George Town Festival Director Joe Sidek

“[...]We are very excited to be working together with MyPAA on the Borak Arts Series.  It’s timely that an arts conference of this stature is included into the Festival’s programming.  I believe that programmes that spur intellectual discourses would complement well with all the performances and exhibitions that happen during this month-long festival, making the George Town Festival a celebration for the mind and senses”

In celebration of Malaysia’s chairmanship of ASEAN this year, the theme of Borak Arts Series will be ASEAN and the Future. The conference will bring together artists, presenters/producers, intermediaries, and funders and will include keynote addresses, panel discussions, country and city highlights, round robin sessions, networking platforms and performances.

Further strengthening the content for this year’s conference to aid in bringing local and ASEAN works across borders, MyPAA will be including two brand new components.

  • One-on-One Meetings with local and international presenters including theater programmers and festival directors with an appetite for ASEAN works such as Joe Sidek (George Town Festival), Kristopher McDowell (KMP Artists, USA), Marnie Karmelita (Brisbane Powerhouse), Kate Ben-Tovim (Arts Centre Melbourne), Joseph Mitchell (Adelaide Festival Centre), Andrew Ross (Darwin Festival)
  • Pitchpad ASEAN, a forum for ASEAN creators and arts professionals to share and discover new performing arts projects.  Up to 10 ASEAN submissions will be selected to pitch their new works to a stellar line-up of international festival directors and venue programmers in the presence of more than 170 performing arts professionals.  Successful ASEAN participants will be flown into George Town to aid them in their pitch.

ASEF culture360 will be there together with many speakers such as Rithisal Kang (Amrita Performing Arts, Cambodia), Amna Kusumo (Kelola Foundation, Indonesia), Dr. Joseph Victor Gonzales (ASWARA, Malaysia), Eliza Roberts (Asialink, Australia), Laurent Van Kote (Ministere de la Culture et de la Communication, France), Pang Khee Teik (Malaysia), Grace Chin (Viddsee, Malaysia), Emmanuel Benbihy (Cities of Love, France), Pauline Fan (PUSAKA, Malaysia).

Stay tuned to ASEF culture360 in the next few weeks for exclusive interviews, in-depth articles and updates on Borak Arts Series 2015!

Manus Brinkman

We have learned with great sadness about the passing of our dear friend and valued colleague, Mr. Manus BRINKMAN, on Saturday, 4 July 2015 in Chiangmai, Thailand.

Like many of us, I was deeply sad upon hearing this news. The following personal message from Manus to his beloved partner, has been shared to Manus’ family members, friends and former colleagues all around the world, and I truly believe it is relevant for all of us who are still living:

‘the most important understanding in my life is the meaning behind the song title: “You don’t miss your water ‘till your well runs dry”’.  Realise what you have, do things you want to do, cherish it all and don’t take anything for granted.

Looking back, for me it is with no doubt that Manus had led a great deal of his life the way he wanted to until his very last moment. I believe Manus is one of the greatest contributors in the museum sector. He started his career at the Tropen Museum in Amsterdam as an educational staff before taking on the role of Director at the Children Museum Tropen Junior. After a decade of working with the Tropen Museum, he was elected as Director for the Dutch Museum Association in Amsterdam for 8 years. Later, between 1998 and 2004, Manus took on a position of Secretary General of the prestigious International Council of Museums (ICOM) in Paris.

Manus’s presentation at ASEMUS GC 2012 at the National Museum of Korea in Seoul (Korea) Conversation with Mr Choe Kwang Shik, Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism (Korea) in occasion of the opening reception of the ASEMUS General Conference (GC) at the National Korea, Friday, 14 September 2012 Manus with Fionnuala CROOKE, ASEMUS Chairperson (2014-2016) and Director of Chester Beatty Libray in Dublin, Ireland Manus with Sabina SANTAROSSA, former Director Culture Department, Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF)

Manus moved to Chiangmai and was based there for the past ten years working as Content-Editor of the Virtual Collections of Masterpieces (VCM),  one of the most successful projects initiated by the Asia-Europe Museum Network (ASEMUS). Manus had been involved in ASEMUS since its inception and had always been a great supporter to the network ever since.

We are honoured to have met and worked with Manus. It has been a privilege to hear about his knowledge and witness his passion.  It has also been a great pleasure to have shared our thoughts and laughter. Manus was and will always be a wonderful inspiration for us and we will miss him dearly. On behalf of ASEF and ASEMUS, we would like to express our deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy to his family, friends and colleagues.

The artistic directors of ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival, Johanna Tuukkanen and Gregg Whelan, say:

“In their diverse artistic processes, ranging from political and environmental activism, to urban experientialism and scientific research, these exceptional artists challenge us to re-consider our relationship to both art and the world around us, all six ask essential questions about the human condition”

The 2015 winner of the ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art will be chosen by a three member jury: curator Tang Fu Kuen (TH), architect Sami Rintala (FI/NO) and director of Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Leevi Haapala (FI) as chair.

Underling the award’s reputation Haapala says:

“Now in its second year this prize has quickly become a very important moment in the international arts calendar – it celebrates the vitality, intelligence and cultural agency of live art, in all of its many forms.”

The world’s only International Prize for Live Art is 30,000 euros, with the winning artist receiving a cash prize of 15,000 euros and the same amount in the form of a production grant for bringing a new work to the ANTI Festival in 2016. The prize is funded by the Saastamoinen Foundation.

The creative design economy in Thailand is benefiting from various initiatives, with research and resources facilities, a Creative Thailand campaign and the roll out of a series of Creative and Design Centres in various gateway cities to promote artistic goods made by local artists.

Thailand Creative & Design Center (TCDC) was established in 2004 to connect and promote interaction among creativity, skill, cultural asset and business conducive to creating quality products and services that meet the global market demand.

creativethailandCreative Thailand: Building Thailand’s Economy with Creativity” is a campaign run by Thailand Creative & Design Center (TCDC), office of Knowledge Management and Development, with an aim to create public awareness toward the Creative Economy and promote the Creative Industry as a key for the national economic development. This project composes of the website www.creativethailand.org and the monthly magazine which is a free publication with an aim to promote creativity as a new economic engine for Thailand and to create better understanding of creativity as a key asset of Thai economic development in the future.

According to Apinan, Chiang Rai and Ratchaburi will be the first two gateway provinces where the “Creative and Design Center” will be set up under a THB7,900m budget of the ministry. The centers are expected to be a hub for local artists, designers, developers and residents to produce and share their folk wisdom’s to tourists, leading to extra income for their communities.

The laureates of the prestigious Fukuoka Prize 2015 have been announced. The Grand Prize goes to the renowned Myanmar author, historian and Yangon heritage champion, Thant Myint-U. The Arts and Culture Prize is awarded to Vietnamese fashion designer Minh Hanh.

As Japan’s cultural gateway, Fukuoka City has since antiquity played a significant role in promoting exchanges with other regions of Asia. This history, and a determination to promote and understand the distinctive cultures of Asia, and to further peace, inspired the inauguration of the Fukuoka Prize (formerly known as the Fukuoka Asian Culture Prize) in 1990 through collaboration between academia, businesses, and the city authorities. Since then, there have been many prize recipients from almost every region of Asia.

Grand Prize 2015
Thant Myint-U – Historian [ Chairman, Yangon Heritage Trust ] Myanmar

Dr. Thant Myint-U is an exceptionally outstanding historian in contemporary Asia, writing accessible history of his ancestral homeland, Myanmar (Burma). To recreate the identity of the nation, he is committed to the preservation of historic buildings in Myanmar and to sustainable urban planning. Moreover, he has devoted himself to furthering peace in the world and in his own country. Dr. Thant Myint-U is a distinguished intellectual of 21st century Asia, narrating the voices of the people of Myanmar and connecting them with the wider international community.

Arts and Culture Prize 2015
Minh Hanh – Fashion Designer Vietnam

Based on her deep insight of Vietnam’s original cultures, Ms. Minh Hanh has created contemporary fashions by fusing ao dai and time-honored embroideries and fabrics inherited among Vietnamese ethnic minorities. As a leading fashion designer in Vietnam, she has also organized many fashion shows in various parts of the world and developed young designers and the fashion market in Vietnam. Her great contribution to the development of fashion culture makes her worthy of the Arts and Culture Prize of the Fukuoka Prize.

The 26th Fukuoka Prize award ceremony will be held at Fukuoka International Congress Center, Japan on 17 September 2015. Admission is free.

DutchCulture presents the annual overview of the international cultural presence of artists and cultural organisations from the Netherlands. In an original design format, the Buitengaats | Offshore map uses data visualisation to  explore the international dissemination of art and culture from the Netherlands.

DutchCulture has registered the international activities of Dutch artists, creatives and organisations in Offshore (Buitengaats) since 1999. What has caught our eye for 2014?

In 2014, we registered 12,978 activities in Offshore. That is a little less than in the two previous years (13,319 in 2013 and 13,534 in 2012). Music was the sector with the most international performances, with a remarkable increase in the pop/dance genre. And that immediately explains the new number one on the countries chart: the United States. Thanks in part to the tremendous popularity of Dutch DJs, the US elbowed out Germany as most important destination. The United Kingdom, Belgium and France complete the top five.

buitengaatsmapAsia

 

Overall 65% of the activities took place in Europe and 10% of the activities took place in Asia.

One of the questions we were asked most often in 2014 was: Can you determine what the influence of the cutbacks is on the international activities of Dutch artists and institutes with the help of Offshore?

Fewer activities? Not everywhere
The number of activities in Offshore has been fairly stable for years. A decrease in activities, even for the second year in a row, says little about the extent to which organisations have lowered their international ambitions. The fact is, however, that the number of activities has decreased in almost every discipline, with one big exception: pop/dance, a sector that is less dependent on government subsidies than more traditional disciplines. What is more surprising is a slight increase for dance and photography, where good networks and a favourable reputation seem to strengthen one another.

Fewer artists and organisations?
In times of economising, do fewer artists and organisations go abroad? Compared to 2013, the number of artists and organisations decreased slightly in 2014, but the difference is very small: 3764 in 2014 and 3776 in 2013. Each year we see new ‘frequent travellers’ cropping up, artists and organisations with many international presentations in their discipline. For that matter, we also regularly see names returning, especially with theatre, dance and the visual arts. The contribution of the companies comprising the basic cultural infrastructure of the Netherlands to the total number of international activities has strikingly decreased, however, from 6.7% in 2013 to 4.4% in 2014.

What the figures do not show, however, is how institutes and makers have adjusted their strategies to a new reality and the extent to which a shift is taking place in the offering within and between the disciplines. And what consequences this might have for the international visibility of Dutch art and culture in the longer term.

The new permanent home of the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art has opened at Gorky Park in Moscow.  Installed in a major renovation of a historic restaurant by Rem Koolhaas’ architectural firm OMA, the Garage is a private museum of contemporary art.

The Garage, a private museum of contemporary art founded by Roman Abramovich’s wife Dasha Zhukova, has now acquired a permanent home at the Gorky Central Park of Culture and Recreation this year, in the restored premise of the once-popular Vremena Goda (Seasons of the Year) restaurant. The building stood derelict for two decades before Roman Abramovich bought the ruins of this Soviet eatery in 2013. Its renovation, undertaken by Rem Koolhaas’ OMA, a leading international architectural firm practising architecture, urbanism, and cultural analysis, cost $27 million.

Garage is celebrating the building’s completion with a range of exhibitions, performances, screenings, workshops, and events.  Among the opening shows are:

‘Shifting Scales and Sceneries’ is the latest publication in the IETM Fresh Perspectives series. Eric Corijn looks at Art, Globalisation and Territories, considering how the performing arts in Europe have responded to global transformation forces and whether they mirror a re-scaled world.

This new publication of IETM’s Fresh Perspectives series deals with performing arts and territories. Global issues like economic stress, environmental challenges and migration flows are influencing and transforming European cities and their populations. National identities no longer correspond to national borders; the physical and the mental spaces we inhabit – our territories – are shifting.

How did the performing arts react to these shifts? Are they playing in national territories, in regions or in urban networks? Are they European, local or global – alternatively or at the same time? Whose stories do they tell? And how are they part of the geopolitical or socio-economic gaming? These are the key questions at the origin of this essay

Download Shifting Scales and Sceneries

IETM is a membership organisation which exists to stimulate the quality, development and contexts of contemporary performing arts in a global environment.

It aims at proving the value of the performing arts in society by initiating and facilitating professional networking and communication, the dynamic exchange of information, know-how transfer and presentations of examples of good practice.

More than 500 member organisations from around 50 countries around the world are part of IETM. Our main roots are in Europe but we welcome organisations from all parts of the world.
