From the organizer:
“về Huế” – a multi-platform, participatory project, undertaken by a group of independent artists, architects, researchers, scholars, and social/ cultural activists, in collaboration with established art activist entities — is a direct response to Vietnam’s rapid yet uncontrolled urbanization. The project, through showcasing the fading local architectural heritage of Hue City and the surrounding villages (those that are situated outside of the UNESCO designated Imperial City) seeks to establish Hue’s cultural continuity through preserving cultural material, especially architecture, the social current that records historical evolution as well as opening up conversations regarding architectural heritage preservation, a topic with overdue attention in the country.
