TIDF 2018 – Performance & Talk
This year 2018, one of the most important moment for my practice and research, was the participation to Taiwan International Documentary Festival (TIDF). Several events and projects were developed through this collaboration, from live performance to commissioned documentary to the curating of the exhibition KINO-EAR.
