Berlin-based transdisciplinary collective Einhundert has teamed up with Taipei's very own underground label Chiching Records for a research project diving into the respective culture of each city. Outside of mainstream-perspectives and place branding mechanisms, the project aims to present an in-depth qualitative view of what local identity constitutes in a globalized world.
Titled "Die geistige Verbindung" (the spiritual connection), the project explores connections and variations between both cities and collectives. It further reflects on personal experiences based on extended stays in Taiwan and Germany in the pre-Covid era, while playing with cliches and addressing contemporary political discourses encountered during the process.
Looking into local cultures, modes of perception, Western gazes on SE Asia, and questions of identity and belonging centered around personal experiences, the diverse perspectives of this project were summed up in a transdisciplinary series of products and events - from radio shows, film, and photography to music and clothing.
