諸眾之貌 ─ 諸眾亞洲資料庫計劃（multitude.asia）
Till We Have Faces! (multitude.asia) Project
Innumerable words have been used to describe social groups, we have familiar terms such as the people, the public, the crowds, the masses, the multitude, the class, all of which are terms favored by those who prefer to deploy power in a top-down hierarchy. Moreover, intellectuals and populists fall for the very same terminology with similar enthusiasm. With the development of network technologies, the significations of these words have been brilliantly transformed to refer to totally opposite states of affair, such as preferences of the elites, the selected few and bourgeoisie groups. We now propose to restructure the contents of these words, not with the purpose of correcting the misnomers, but with the aim of creating ambiguous meanings until they take on new faces. Metaphorically speaking, what we are searching for are the seeds of social dynamic structure, rather than the flowers emerging from the dynamics. We wish to show that knowledge and practice can be self-taught through association with other groups of people, then mobilization and networking will also become autonomous. This faith in the people and their thought has always been the core belief of Inter-Asia School. Starting from Asia, we will start to build archives of group interactions on the website. Every archive will contain complete video records and in-depth discussions. We will also prepare a condensed version of each archive, which will serve as the catalogue for dispersing. Until the Program rolls, then faces will emerge. This project is sponsored by Inter-Asia School and China Academy of Art, organized by Professor Huang, Sun Quan.
