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 3 focuses on devotion and features artists from Hong Kong to Uzbekistan, including Zhang Huan, Shintaro Sakamoto, Fatima Al Qadiri, Taysir Batniji, animation duo AC-bu, Wednesday Campanella, Fish Zhang, Eikoh Hosoe, the founder of Butoh dance and more.
