Hi Simon,

Yes I agree with you, I am actually going back to Hong Kong on the 10th and
spend two weeks there to look at some exchange projects we can link up with
the South West Arts and to encourage partnership with some media institution
and centre in the region.  Certainly look at Videotage, Zuni (Where May Fung
works) the Hong Kong Arts Development Council and City University.

Hung Keung is another artist is very interesting, his is the visiting
scholar at ZKM last year, and recently met him Bristol.  He done intereting
interactive cd-rom and web project. Also Ellen Pau, who show in Viance
Biannale last year.

In other asian city, Philippines done a lot of interesting project, bagio
festivel, third space and the university. There is couple individual in
China, like Fung Ming Bo who shown in Documanta this year. So I agree that
the development in new media as a wider practice in other asian countries
could be surprisingly fast.  And it is really interesting to see how is that
different compare to UK and USA.

But the fact is the new media in the curating context still far behind,
basically there is lack of knowledge of curating in general, there is no
course in Hong Kong in curating (esp in visual arts).  There is some art
administration course but mainly in performing arts and theatre.  Honestly,
I am the first and only one now from Hong Kong have 'academic qualification'
in curating field, whatever is significant or not.

Zoe
