The Taiwan Ireland Association presents


Our Youth, in Taiwan: Film Screening

Dates: 15 Jun - 15 Jun

Show Time: 2.30pm

Tickets: €10

Taiwan Ireland Association present a special screening of Our Youth in Taiwan, a documentary film about youth, idealism, social movement and Taiwan, followed by a Q&A with director Fu Yue.

Stories of bidding farewell to one’s youth and growing up are commonplace. The dream shared by the protagonists in the film is to build a better country by rebelling against the establishment. However, their fight becomes part of history in the turbulent relations between Taiwan and China.

A star of the Taiwanese student movement, a celebrity Chinese student who loves Taiwan, and a Taiwanese documentary filmmaker passionate about politics. Each of them shared dreams of rebellion and building a better country. In the wake of the biggest social movement in Taiwan in recent years they came close to realising their goals but gradually they were let down again. Is it still possible for them to continue fighting for the ideals they had been pursuing?

Fu Yue studied in the Department of Radio and Television in one of the top Taiwanese universities, later receiving a Masters in Sound and Image Studies. She mainly explore young people’s ideals and attitudes towards Taiwan’s political and economic landscape. ‘Our Youth, In Taiwan’ is her third documentary film. Her films have received several awards at the youth film festival in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan and she has been nominated for Best Documentary and Best Editing at the Golden Horse Awards.

As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie?

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
