2020臺灣文博會年度主題為「Supermicros - 數據廟」，臺灣是一座由微小相信所匯聚的島，相信的起源、共創的結構，人們透過主張共識而行動，產生文化共信的價值。在臺灣多樣性的生態系中，自然、科技、信仰，再再地見證了這股匯聚中的超級力量。它會是一首自由的歌，它是聚集起來的光，齊唱共鳴的一刻，是我們繼續夢想偉大的自信。
Culture On the Move A Grand Experiment to Create People’s Imagination of Culture Following the significance and inspiration that modern society received from railway’s mechanical power centuries ago, the theme “Culture On the Move”, is to merge culture and time by connecting historical spaces, and to create a “Cultural Corridor” and to bring together people’s imagination of city development, but also spatial and collective memories from different times. “Culture” refers to the dynamic collision and integration of meanings, and “Move” calls on all to explore the native culture of Taiwan. By the means of multiple curators’ and artists’ approach to Taiwan culture, everyone is invited to think about how the concept, and “Culture On the Move,” can be realized. While every movement includes surprising twists and discontinuities, “Culture On the Move” gathers the power of the multitude to explore every cultural possibility, and stays open-minded for discovering the unique charm of Taiwanese culture. This movement will indeed continue. Culture is always on the move!
Our body as A Catalyst to Stimulate Originality and Create Generation Change The 2018 Creative Expo opens up a new Cultural Concept Exhibition Hall where our theme goes from “How design improves our lives” to “How we can design and create with cultural thinking.” Through a series of finely curated events based on Design Thinking, the Expo explores the possibility of design creativity as discovered in cultural contemplations. A forward-thinking Creative Expo is no longer confined to transactions of cultural and creative goods. It is now challenging the worldview that we are so used to. For this year’s topic, ”Body Knowledge”, the exhibition starts from the self-consciousness of our body, then to the basic human senses to find the clues to creativity. Through various exhibition topics, we discuss how proprioception, an innate feeling, can redefine our understanding about originality, aesthetics and culture.
Process: Sense Making In 2017 Creative Expo Taiwan, the curatorial team does not take the design, industry and craft goods as a showcase of cultural symbol; instead, the team uses issues as a main concept through the conversation between different sectors to propose the different imagination of cultural path of the spectrum of “Wonderful Life.” The discussion of contemporary culture in Taiwan across the generations is the multifaceted context of the exhibition – the fruit of the curatorial process. As the curatorial concept this year “CULTURAL EXPLOSION,” it represents the energy of younger generation, the desire of change and creation, sense of life, the multidisciplinary collaboration, different interfaces and mediums, and different paths and strategies that is the energy to stimulate the fireworks of culture, industry and design.
World Class Style from the Huaren World The theme this year is “Savoring the rich Eastern Culture”. “Eastern Culture” is a generalized cultural idea deeply rooted in Chinese lifestyle. We appreciate and experience the good values, purify Taiwan local cultural creative ideas and promote Eastern and Western interaction through the amazing expo. So that the familiar local spirit and element shines on the international stage.
The Window Display of Exquisite Lifestyle The concept of Creative Expo Taiwan this year implies the temporal and spatial values of a free and openness in Taiwan where it is suitable for creations with an immeasurable multi-cultural virtue, as well as the key to expand industries deeper and wider, is the indispensable strength of Taiwan. It is a prolific piece of culture and creation with new hopes. With Quality & Identity, CET points out the brand qualia and composition. As a point of departure from the contemporary classics, it elegantly begins with eastern principles and a western methodology throughout, experiencing economics through sensory means, noticing the necessity of cultural roots of Taiwan and believing one with all creativity will stimulate a higher industrial value and economic transformation.
