2022.09.30 Setouchi Asia Forum 2022 -Think of today's world connected through the sea

As an official program of the Setouchi Triennale 2022, we are pleased to announce that the Setouchi Asia Forum 2022 will be held on October 16 in a hybrid format, connecting the Setouchi venue with the rest of the world online.
The Setouchi Asia Forum, launched in 2016 and held for the second time in 2019, has contributed to the formation of a network of organizations and individuals from various Asian regions involved in regional development through art and culture and has generated dialogues and exchanges. In 2021, due to the COVID 19 infection, we decided to organize the event online under the title "Artists' Breath Live: Artists in the midst of the pandemic," and transmitted live the voices of about 30 artists from 27 countries and regions around the world, and published a booklet compiling the texts contributed by 80 artists from about 40 countries and regions on "what they felt and worked on during this period."
The Corona disaster continued since 2020 and the invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops has continued, and global issues including famine, refugees, and conflicts have confronted us with to question, what is the global environment? What is globalization? What is a nation? Yet, we are still living as best we can under the yoke of the countries we belong to and the time we have been living in. Can art be a close friend of humanity at this time as it once was? We would like to explore this possibility by listening to the voices of artists and people involved in culture and the arts who are working hard in various parts of the world.

In the past, salt production flourished in Tamano, which has a mild climate with many sunny days and faces the Seto Inland Sea, where the tidal range is large. Even before the port and shipbuilding industry flourished, salt fields were spread all along the coast. Let's feel the history of salt production in Tamano and the flow of time through the breath of salt.
