As part of the Storefront International Series Hong Kong, the Reading Images Series: Transborder Territories was held on Friday, 7th July 2017.
Over the course of the ferry ride from Hong Kong to Shekou, the participants were invited to construct an argument based around an image. Focusing on the theme of “Transborder Territories”, discussion was influenced by the shifting landscapes and infrastructures outside the ferry windows, and participants created narratives and arguments surrounding the idea of migration, identity and geopolitical borders.
Participants: Ethel Baraona, Ole Bouman, Jason Hilgefort, Cole Roskam, Shirley Surya, Paul Tse, Evelyn Ting
Moderators: Carlos Mínguez Carrasco, Marisa Yiu
Image contributors: Merve Bedir, Venus Lau, MAP Office, Stanley Wong
