Impact:
This is a thought-provoking book that brings both theoretical frameworks and case studies into light. Tung’s book explores the perspectives of social practice in contemporary art from within Western and East Asian contexts. It also adds significant perspectives on education and civil activism. This book is worth reading for practitioners of interdisciplinary art and researchers concerned with the relation of art to the development of communities.
— Mali Wu, Director of Graduate School of interdisciplinary Arts, National Normal University of Kaohsiung, Recipient of the 19th National Awards of Art, Taiwan 2016 and Taishin Art Award, Taiwan 2013

The Challenge of Aesthetics: Social Practice in Contemporary Art is a book that shows that contemporary art practice is not about creating miracles or works of genius; it is about the stories of “communities self-awakening and being fulfilled, as well as receiving support from the ‘outside’.” For Wei Hsiu Tung, the “Plum Tree Creek,” “Togo Village,” and “Mirage” projects, amongst others, all epitomize contemporary art practice in terms of social engagement, care for the environment, civil discussion or education, and resistance to urban gentrification. Beside the usual references to Bishop, Lacy, Kester and Bourriaud, Tung’s The Challenge of Aesthetics provides Chinese language readers of studies on social practice art with a local perspective as well as worldview from within the self-reflective framework of Taiwan.

Impact:
Wei Hsiu Tung’s innovative new tome deftly explores how the “artistic residence” or “artist-in-residence” in Taiwan is no longer confined in large part to reflecting on Taiwanese culture and society but instead serves as a key contributor to cultural interpretation, awakening, and change. Employing a vital cross-cultural perspective, comparing the artistic residence in Taiwan with that in Britain, Tung adds important perspectives to this global phenomenon. Interviews with painters, photographers, sculptors, and other artists who have created art not for museums or galleries but instead to “speak to mass audiences,” add significantly to the depth and breadth of this study. Examining as well the concrete implications for artists-in-residence endeavors in Taiwan, especially as concerns how artists integrate the pulls of the local and the global, Art for Social Change and Cultural Awakening represents an important contribution to Asian studies.
— Karen L. Thornber, Professor of Comparative Literature, Harvard University

This book examines the practice of artists-in-residence in Taiwan, via an engaging treatment of art and artists as seen from the perspective of the embodied eye of anthropology and through juxtaposition with Britain. The volume sheds new light on Taiwan since the lifting of martial law, exploring not only governmental support for art and artists but also processes of democracy and identity as they have unfolded in a cultural and aesthetic history that is both Asian and European, indigenous and Chinese, modern and post-modern. The book is accessible and original, and should be essential reading for all those interested in Taiwanese culture and society since the transition to democracy. Particularly striking is the way the author weaves together identity and art as the unfinished, mutable, and invented productions of relational rather than egoistic complexes.
— Fang-long Shih, Co-Director, LSE Taiwan Research Programme, London School of Economics

Wei-Hsiu Tung’s Art for Social Change and Cultural Awakening marks a significant advance in East-Asian cultural studies. While much has been said about relational and interventionist art in Western and trans-national contexts, this is the first major book-length study to address similar forms of artistic practice in Taiwan. Tung’s extended anthropological meditation on artistic residency is indispensable reading not only for those with a specific interest in contemporary Taiwanese art, but also anyone concerned with the wider implications of the relationship between
culture and globalization.
— Paul Gladston, Professor of Contemporary Visual Cultures and Critical Theory, University of Nottingham

This is an atypical study in art…it focuses on artists in residence as a community…engaged in the shaping of currents and values reflective of changing times. The author emphasizes in particular the ongoing importance of cultural identity in these deeper introspections and debates. By invoking an anthropological approach, the emphasis is really on the experiential aspects of artistic production. The practice of residential communities is perhaps not unlike the seminal role that Jürgen Habermas attributed to salons in the structural transformation of the public sphere. For all these reasons, this monograph should be of interest to scholars not only in art but also cultural studies in general and critically minded students of all kinds working on contemporary
Asia and elsewhere.
— Allen Chun, Research Fellow, Institute of Ethnology, Academia Sinica, Taiwan

Wei Hsiu Tung’s Art for Social Change and Cultural Awakening: An Anthropology of Residence in Taiwan offers insightful perspectives on Taiwan’s democratization and globalization through the lens of the visual arts, specifically artists’ engagement with society through artistic residences. ... Art for Social Change and Cultural Awakening is both fascinating and well worth reading.
