諸眾之貌 ─ 諸眾亞洲資料庫計劃(multitude.asia)

無以計數的詞彙被創造出來描繪社會的集合,人民、大眾、人群、群眾、諸眾、階級等等。越是從上而下的權利部署就喜歡調動這些詞彙,知識份子與民粹主義者幾乎是同樣熱情的表達對這些詞彙的愛好。它們出現在各種傳播媒介上,網絡技術的發展使得它們愈來愈精彩的指涉與它們的恰恰相反的事務,精英、少數、小眾、資產階級集團的偏好。如今,我們企圖重新構造這些詞彙的內容,目的不在於繪制詞彙的正確意涵,相反地,我們要歧義它們直到不同面貌出現為止。用植物的比喻來說,我們在找尋社會動力結構的種子,而非花朵。我們想看到一個群體如何在與其他群體交往中,展開知識與實踐的自我學習,動員力的自主與連結。本項目將從亞洲範圍開始,以網站資料庫建立群體交往的檔案,每一檔案有完整的影像記錄與深度論述,及其影像精華版,以此開始,諸眾亞洲方現。此計畫為亞際書院、中國美術學院跨媒體學院,夢周基金會所支持,由台灣黃孫權教授擔任總召集人。

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.
