Podcast: Mute/Unmute #53: Pohan Chiu on Taiwanese Art and Identity

Podcast: Mute/Unmute(WiSe 21/22)

Mute/Unmute is a podcast and seminar by Astrid Mania, with the support of Noi Fuhrer (WS2021/21 and SoSe 2021), Rahel grote Lambers and Anne Meerpohl. The idea of this podcast is to introduce and discuss art works, theories and incidents that relate to questions like: who is allowed to speak, who’s not? What can be said, what not? Whose voices have been suppressed? What kind of narratives and histories? What violence do we exert when speaking about others? What should we urgently talk about?

Mute/Unmute is meant to be active during the winter semester 2023/24, but it can potentially run much longer. We welcome contributions from HFBK students and staff and beyond. For more info / list of contributions please see and  / or get in touch with or

In this episode, Astrid Mania talks to Pohan Chiu about Taiwanese art and artists in the context of Taiwan's contribution to the 59th Venice Biennale. In addition, they discuss Taiwanese art historiography as well as food and identity.
