駁二藝術特區 The Pier-2 Art Center
In 2001, a group of passionate Taiwanese artists established the Pier-2 Artistic Development Association. Pier-2 has become the headquarters for artistic development in southern Taiwan.
The Kaohsiung City Bureau of Cultural Affairs took over the Pier-2 Art Center in 2006, starting a series of exhibitions and festivals such as the Kaohsiung Design Festival, the Chinese Character Exhibition, Kaohsiung International Steel & Iron Sculpture Festival, Kaohsiung International Container Art Festival, “Here comes the Kaohsiungers”, Mega Port Festival, The Wall Moon Theatre, Kaohsiung Youth Innovative Design Exhibition, Intertidal Region, Point & Wavy Ribbon Formation Performance Season etc. Every performance and exhibition filled the city with creative vibes injecting new life to the Pier-2 Art Center. In doing so, the center has continuously been presenting avant-garde perceptions and appearances, while building this port city into an attractive cultural and living hub.
TWR Entertainment, Inc. has found their home in Warehouse Number 9.TWR Entertainment, Inc. is a globally-focused, Asia-based media organization that successfully blends world class creativity and groundbreaking technology innovation. Pier-2 has now become on par with the rest of the artistic world where imagination, creativity, and animation has become solid building blocks for the future.
Kaohsiung's light rail system will be fully operational and linked to both the Red and Orange lines of the Kaohsiung MRT. The new system will significantly enhance the city's mass-transit system and create a more complete urban transportation network. With 35 stations and six transfer stations, the light rail system's two lines (Ring Line and Waterfront Line) will total 22.1km in length. Construction work is to start in October 2012, with the Waterfront Line scheduled to start running in December 2014. The light rail system will improve the quality of transportation in Kaohsiung, create a barrier-free environment, and hopefully encourage the city's 2.2 million motorcyclists to embrace a low-carbon form of transportation.
Port of Kaohsiung is the 12th busiest container port in the world. Consequently, Kaohsiung City Government has been actively shaping the port zone to become Asia's New Bay Area. Starting in 2013, the government will initiate a series of building projects in the port area, along piers 15 to 21 and nearby. Projects include the Kaohsiung Exhibition and Convention
Center, which will host major international exhibitions, the Port and Cruise Service Center, which will serve travelers, the Kaohsiung Maritime Culture and Popular Music Center, where musical and cultural performances will be held, and Kaohsiung Main Public Library, a superb example of eco-friendly architecture.

韓國亞洲電影與錄像藝術論壇 Asian Film & Video Art Forum/ Hand-made Film Lab SPACE CELL
新興成立聚焦亞洲各國實驗影像單位作研究呈現，2015年已於韓國MMCA首爾國立現代美術館舉辦呈現，未來此亞洲電影與錄像藝術論壇Asian Film & Video Art Forum 也將朝向雙年展形式研究與舉辦。
手工製作的薄膜的實驗室空間CELL 自2004年以來開設了實驗電影工作坊和定期放映活動，並且每年為 Exis 首爾實驗影展呈現年度單元。這個節目結合了由一些穩定一直在創造電影的藝術家作品。電影攝製者正在探索影片藝術性的可能性和新的美學領域，不僅通過分享實驗室設備處理過程中的作品，同時也形成彼此間的互動關係。。
Hand-made Film Lab SPACE CELL
Hand-made Film Lab SPACE CELL has opened experimental filmmaking workshop and screenings periodically since 2004. Also SPACE CELL make annual programs for Exis. This program is composed of a combination of works by artists who have steadily been creating films. The filmmakers are exploring film’s artistic possibilities and new aesthetic areas not only by sharing lab equipment while processing work, but also by forming interactive relationships among themselves.
MMCA Film and Video had introduced the works of internationally well-known moving-image artists' (Scintillation or Disappearance_Artist Film & Video; Berlinale Forum Expanded_MMCA), and had recently bonded with seven Asian curators in order to discover and support struggling artists in Asia. Just like the attempts of the 60s' artists', currently we need to bond together in order to develop a distribution system in which the artworks can be shared. Such attempts are less about vitalizing the underground market than about film arts that will preserve our memories and developing a space where various issues of Asia can be shared. I Hope 〈Asia Film and Video Forum〉 can play an effective role in creating a new paradigm for the 'This is not a just image, it is just an image' video art.

韓國首爾視聽館 Audio Visual Pavilion
視聽館 (AVP) 是一個展覽廳和空間位於首爾，韓國傳統的房子建成，希望通過這樣的設計，發現、記錄和創建出一種真實-存在著內部和外部的視覺和聽覺的視覺文化 AVP視聽館是由總監SeewonHyunand和策展人Inyong，成立，同時也是在 2006 年推出的獨立雜誌雜誌Walking的成員。透過 AVP，他們創建了 '什是他們想要看到' 和藝術家與策展人的思想與創造力可備自由的顯現在這個各式各樣的的視覺文化裡。
Audio Visual Pavilion (AVP) is an exhibition hall and space located at 57-6 Jahamun-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul. Originally built ashanok, a U shaped Korean traditional house, the building consists of a small courtyard, kitchen, laundry room, and a small room by the gate, and has been used as a residential home since its establishment in 1947. AVP is designed to maintain the physical form of hanok and to create a place where art is not separated from reality. Through such a design, it wishes to find, record, and create reality that exists within and outside of the visual culture of seeing and hearing.
AVP is run by curator Seewon Hyun and editor Inyong An, members of Walking Magazine, an independent magazine launched in 2006. Through AVP, they create ‘what they wish to see’ and a form of visual culture where the ideas and creativity of the artists and curators can be freely manifested. This is the question raised by AVP: What other types of situations could we create where art can be experienced, within today’s institution of art? Here, art refers to not only paintings but also music, performances, films, literature, and other various forms of art that are manifested through time and space. AVP hopes to make many unconventional attempts, however small they may be, that go beyond the usual functions of its kind, such as display, installation, sales, collection and support system.
Another vision of AVP is collecting stories, such as texts, dialogues, papers, etc. For the two directors of AVP, collecting stories means rearranging and reinterpreting events and situations that take place in art, or more broadly, reality. More specifically, AVP publishes various types of small and large publications continuously. The 4-page ‘AVP Document’ is printed every two weeks and archived in the AVP’s website. It also publishes books including a book that compiles AVP Documents, as well as the ‘AVP Book’ that deals with various art projects and exhibitions. In addition, AVP frequently holds talks and interviews with artists that contribute or are in connection with AVP.
