Inter-World-View is an annual project initiated by the Institute of Contemporary Art and Social Thought (ICAST) of the School of Inter-Media Art, China Academy of Art. It is first launched this year in November and now open for long-term public applications.

Inter-World-View, is an interaction between "Worldview," and also an "Interview" of the World and Worldview.

This year we wish to invite 10 to 20 groups of young people from all professions, from all over the world, who have unique inquiring on “Worldviews,” work modes, creation methods, and lifestyles to Hangzhou. They will meet, exhibit, debate, work, live and connect with each other in order to establish a profound communication for long-term cooperation in the future. Particularly, we are looking forward to inviting specialists who are able to go beyond the fragmentation of professions and fields in order to enter metaphysical dimensions with transcendental thinking and desire to "change the world."

From November 11 to 20, 2019, participators from various continents and different “worlds” will “occupy” and arrange their own spaces. Each day, there will be one team invited to present or perform their "work" (not just “artworks”) in CAA Art Museum, while the rest will be their audiences, facilitators and commentators. Speakers will be on duty by turn. We will try to escape the traditional "opening" procedure in IWV. This project can be a combination of exhibitions, forums, performances and workshops; or none of them, merest "communication" itself. The process of communication generates the live scene.

At the same time we would like to try a new working approach: we wish our participating groups become "work teams” for the entire project: exhibition curators, space designers, poster editors and even chefs, etc. The Butcher in the Master of Regimen by Zhuangzi said: "Tao, is what I favor the most."

In this hypernormal "con-temporary" time and space, the culmination of our project will be the "Interview the World" event.

In 2019 IWV will be accompanied with a series of parallel activities:

On November 9 and 20, 2019, there will be a seminar on the theme of "Symposium: Postmoderns and After?" organized by Yuk Hui about Lyotard’s the “Condition of Postmodernity” after its 40 years publication.

From November 22 to 24, there will be the 4th Annual Conference of Network Society “Netizen 21: Beyond personal account”, which is organized by the Institute of Network Society of China Academy of Art.

At the same time, the 2019 Summit of Art Academy Alliance of Europe (Elia) will be held at the China Academy of Art. On November 20 afternoon, 100 principals from academies of fine arts from all over the world will come and visit, and we also expect these educators from different countries will deliver their experiences in the event after returning to their respective countries and institutions.

We constantly accept applications.
