Imagining New Eurasia: Visualising the Historical Precedents and Contemporary Reconstruction of New Silk Roads. Talk by Kyong Park (South Korea/United States), Professor, Public Culture, University of California, San Diego.
Imagining New Eurasia is a multi-year project commissioned by the Asia Culture Center, Gwangju, South Korea to research and visualize the historical precedents and contemporary reconstructions of Eurasia as one continent. The project wonders what could be the new relationship between East and West, and what would be the new identity of Eurasia. Through a narrative sequence of three distinct chapters, Imagining New Eurasia highlights the significance of cities, networks and territories within new urban, regional and continental geopolitics. The project questions whether a belief in the movements of commerce, migrations and cultural exchanges will bring about greater understanding between different societies, or if we are headed for only larger clashes of civilizations. Central to this project is the New Eurasian Pavilion, which will house panoramic projections of visualizations, accompanied by participatory exhibitions, publications and workshops.
