FAR–NEAR is a curated cross-cultural book series broadening perspectives of Asia through image, person, idea and history to unlearn the inherent dominative mode.
The Asian continent and its people have often been expressed through the lens of a foreign eye–painted as “the other” to a Western audience. Extending beyond the Far East, FAR–NEAR features voices from Japan to Iran and just about everywhere in between.
Volume One focuses on movement, collecting over 30 stories, photos and words on dance, body gestures, political and art movements, and more. Features include Juri Onuki, Shirin Neshat, Pouran Jinchi, Beijing Opera, New Delhi Pride Parade, 9m88, Joji Nakamura, the Gutai Movement and Porochista Khakpour
