MOCA holds exhibition discussing urban migration

2024-05-15

Wealthy Taipei may be the capital city of Taiwan but have you ever looked at it from the perspective of a homeless person or a student? The Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei is holding an exhibition exploring the experiences of poor people who have migrated to Taipei over the last half century and the subsequent process of urbanization. Through a series of installations, "Poor People’s Taipei: Transfer Station" explores the capital’s shadowy underbelly. FTV reporter Stephany Yang takes us in for a look!

The first section of this exhibition focuses on the voices of urban Indigenous people, homeless people and migrant workers. This work "What Brings You Here" is an installation with a timeline showcasing quotes of people who migrated to Taipei from the 1970s to today.

Chu A-iong
Curator
Taipei is a city with many immigrants. When did everyone come to this city? What are their thoughts and perceptions about this city? They collected interviews of homeless people, Indigenous people, and migrant workers. They also discovered why young people, college students or people from other places came to Taipei.

Another work "Luma" is a workers’ shed. Inside the shed are objects and videos to shed light on the experiences of urban Indigenous people. Beginning in the 1960s, urbanization created job opportunities and attracted people from central and southern Taiwan to relocate to Taipei. The exhibition is divided into three sections and recounts people’s urban migration journeys through a series of installations and interviews.

Chu A-iong
Curator
This exhibition is divided into three areas. Because the name of the exhibition is called Transfer Station, we want to start by telling the story of people coming to Taipei after getting off the station. The first exhibition area talks about those who live in this city who are unknown to the public. We recorded the stories of these workers or tribesmen. The second area of the exhibition is about the lifestyle of homeless people or people from poor families. How they are seen from the outside world and how they are treated by society? The third exhibition area is about the future.

Poor People’s Taipei: Transfer Station will be held at the Museum of Contemporary Art until June 16.

台北當代藝術館展出「貧窮人的台北:轉運站」 觀照城市底層生活樣貌

2024-05-15

富裕的台北是台灣的首都,但你是否曾一個街友或學生的角度來看這個城市?台北當代藝術館最近舉辦了名為「貧窮人的台北:轉運站」的特展,探討半個世紀以來移居台北的經濟弱勢族群,以及都市化過程。透過一系列裝置作品,揭示繁華首都的另一面。一起來看看!

展覽的第一部分聚焦於城市原住民、無家可歸者和移工的聲音。這件作品《什麼風把你吹來的》是一個時間線的裝置作品,網羅從70年代至今移居台北的貧窮經驗者的自述。

"因為台北是一個很多移民的城市,大家是在什麼年代來到這個城市?對於這個城市的想法跟想像是什麼?他們蒐集無家者、原住民的族人,還有移工,他還去找了年輕人、大學生或是北飄青年為什麼來到台北?"

另一件作品《家有兩個名字》建造的工人棚屋。棚屋內有物品和影片,揭示城市原住民的經驗。1960年代開始,都市化創造了就業機會,吸引了台灣中部和南部的人們移居台北。展覽分為三個部分,透過一系列裝置和訪談講述人們的城市遷徙之旅。

[[策展人 朱剛勇]]
"這個展覽總共分成三區,因為名字叫做轉運站,我們想要從人一下站之後,來到台北的故事開始說起。第一區講到是這個城市的人是不會留下名字,我們把這些勞工或是族人的故事記錄下來。第二區展示就是關於無家者,或是貧窮家庭人們他們的生活樣態,及從外界眼光是如何看他們,以及如何被社會對待。第三個展區對於未來及的創作。"

《貧窮人的台北:轉運站》將於當代藝術館舉辦至6月16日。
