Das Taipeh Fine Arts Museum (TFAM) hat das Datum der 13. Taipeh Biennale bekanntgegeben. Sie wird von der taiwanesischen Kuratorin Freya Chou, dem Schriftsteller, Pädagogen und Herausgeber Brian Kuan Wood und der Kuratorin Reem Shadid kuratiert. Das Team hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt, gemeinsam eine kuratorische Methodik zu entwickeln, die auf organischer Zusammenarbeit beruht und die Wiederholung und Reproduktion von Wissen und Erinnerung vorantreibt, um der Taipeh Biennale eine neue Dynamik zu geben.

Starting from different perspectives, the three curators will explore new ways of connection and channels of dialogue between Taiwan and the world, while collectively moving the development of the biennial forward based on their previous collaborations.
Being one of the most long-standing biennials in Asia, the Taipei Biennial has endeavored in driving Taiwanese contemporary art development since it was launched in 1998, facilitating a platform of interaction and exchange between local and international communities through its active engagement informed by diversely cultural perspectives in Asian and global contemporary art networks. Throughout the previous editions, the biennial has evolved with the times and made dynamic adjustment. In the recent editions, experts and professionals from various disciplinaries have been invited to participate in the biennial with the objective to spark and introduce multifaceted forms of art, while engendering the energy of different artistic dimensions.
With exhibition mechanism and methodology serving as an entry point, the upcoming edition will be grounded by an exhibition, a public program of music, residencies, workshops and various discursive and experiential forms, gradually generated and shaped in the ongoing collaborative and reciprocal process. The 2023 Taipei Biennial explores how the pressures of daily life and survival flip the scales on many hyper-performative modern apparatuses, sending their weights and measures haywire, breaking open stubbornly intimate enclosures in a still-growing world.
