ASEM 6 Arts And Cultural Programme: Borderless Me!

Project Period: Contact: Department: Programme: Theme:
07 Sep 06 - 11 Sep 06 Asia-Europe Foundation Culture Department Visual Arts Culture



Venue:
Helsinki (Finland)

OVERVIEW

The works of over 100 Asian and European artists were featured in Borderless Me!, a series of creative multimedia installations showcased at the Helsinki Fair Centre. Borderless Me! reflected the rich diversity of ASEM cultures and employed new technologies for Asia­-Europe cultural collaboration.

The installations allowed visitors to be transported to a common and borderless Asia-­Europe visual and sound environment. The "soundscape" materials employed were the result of the 4th Asia-Europe Art Camp 2006, while the artistic input for the visual installation was provided by Berlin-based duo Walkscreen. More than 3,000 guests, including high-level government officials and media, visited Borderless Me! between the meetings at the ASEM 6 venue.
