From Goethe Institut:
Heritage Space and artistic director Nguyen Anh Tuan proudly introduce the WHITE DISTANCE – the final showcase of our annual contemporary international art exchange project called ‘Month of Art Practice – MAP 2021’.
MAP 2021 has the theme “the WHITE DISTANCE” – a response to the distances created by the pandemic and wants to rethink the existing gaps in the physical and psychological human life. The project started from July 2021 to mid-September by a series of weekly online discussions with a large group of artists who participated in the project from 2016-2020. The official time of MAP 2021 was launched in the beginning of October with the participation of 20 artists from Germany, USA, Japan, Korea, India, Switzerland, Finland, France and Vietnam. For 8 weeks working together, 17 individual and collaborative projects by all artists are implemented on multiple online platforms with many new working methods, remotely supported by the coordinators and volunteer’s team in Hanoi. MAP 2021 ends with a showcase at UNION hall, Complex 01 (Hanoi, Vietnam) for 2 weeks at the end of November and will live on the website https://the-white-distance.art within the next 12 months as the online exhibition of the project.
