From Goethe Institut:
Time & Realities is a yearly residency project pairing selected artists with curators, both in Vietnam and connected virtually, in the aim of producing new works in non-fixed spaces while collectively exploring hybrid practice.
The project, spanning the year of 2021, is composed of four simultaneously produced projects that examine selected notions of “Time” and “Realities”. Mediums of performance, sound, poetry, experimental film, and photography are used as tools to unpack these vast concepts. On the 8th of October at 6PM Vietnam time, the artists and curator’s group will share work-in-progress presentations hosted by the Goethe Institut Hanoi and streamed online live. The evening will include readings, video works, mediated discussions and an interactive Q&A.

Nguyễn Minh Hoàng (* 1992, Vietnam)
is a photographer from Hanoi, Vietnam. His work fuses the documentary and the conceptual impulses in photography, producing semi-autobiographical projects that are at once fiction and non-fiction.

Minh-Hoang earned his MFA in Experimental Documentary Arts at Duke University, during which he started to focus on psychic trauma and recovery in arts and especially in photography.
Tomes (Tobias Paramore, *1984, Australia)
is a music producer and sound engineer whose interests lie in creative audio applications.
