The 6th Taiwan International Video Art Exhibition titled Offline Browser explores the relation between human and modern internet world. "Offline is not denying the advancement of technology, but preserving a space for individuals to turn around in the space and time dissolved by the Internet and in between login and offline." said the Hong-gah Museum.

According to the organizer, the exhibition takes the theme "Offline Browser" as a point of departure, escaping from the functional interpretation of “online” and “offline” of the Internet in an attempt to contemplate the structural relationship between individual production and network under the identity of producer, user, consumer as we utilize the platform constructed by the Internet.

There are 44 creative video artworks showcased this time. For example, Hito Steyerl’s How Not To Be Seen: A F***ing Didactic Educational .Mov File proposes an absurd way to hide in the face of the all-seeing network technology, transforming into a unit smaller than a pixel in a sarcastic tone to submerge oneself in the world constructed by images, the museum said.

The Hong-Gah Museum has been dedicated to promoting video art for 2 decades. The free-entry expo "Offline Browser" will be open until Jan. 13, 2019.
