Naked Life

Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei

"Naked Life" explores a specific mode of existence in the age of globalization: thanks to anti-terrorism, border control, homeland security and the prevention of social anomaly, a clandestine, permanent, world-wide state of exception, has prevailed in our everyday life. Human being, at the constant threat of being stripped off political rights and legal protection, has become bare life.

The exhibition features the works of local and international artists who present various forms of naked lives by recreating the real/virtual world experience and the absurdity of history.
