Images of Asia: Cultural Perspectives on a Changing Asia
- About the Book
“This anthology is an edited selection of some of the contributions to the cross-cultural dialogue, organised during the Images of Asia festival, which took place in Denmark in August and September 2003. Images of Asia aimed at varying Danish perceptions of contemporary Asia and at strengthening understanding, cooperation, and dialogue…. The 17 contributions come from South Asia, South East Asia and East Asia, and are [by] artists, journalists, scientists, educators, politicians, diplomats, and civil society activists. Each offers his or her specific, subjective perspective on cultural changes in contemporary Asia.” —from the Preface by Olaf Gerlach Hansen, director, Danish Center for Culture and Development
The contributions to this anthology mirror the many fundamental changes affecting a variety of Asian countries seen in the arts, media, civil society, and cultural economy.
