Study on the Genealogy on Sound Art in Taiwan: Focusing on the Case of WANG Fujui
This project aims to reveal the genealogy of Sound art (聲音藝術) in Taiwan from the 1990s to the 2010s by accumulating interviews with artists.
Based on the research results of this project, in the future, I would like to clarify how "sound art" and "contemporary art" have developed in East Asia, and to consider what transnational dynamics have formed the process and the mechanism of westernization and modernization in Asia.

Message from recipient

I should always continue my research steadily and sincerely. It does not matter what grant you get from where. However, it is indeed difficult to devote oneself to research without any aid, and I am thankful for your understanding of my humanities research. Here I would like to express my gratitude to the Inamori Foundation by expressing my ambition to conduct research that will necessarily contribute to the advancement of academic culture in some way.
