To Bring the World into the World presents the practices of artist collectives, institutions and individual artists working across the South East Asia region and China with a special focus on video, its archiving processes, its presentation, preservation and distribution, as well as its use as a medium to reveal neglected histories, different realities and missing contact points.

The publication component of the project at Art Metropole will introduce recent initiatives in the South East Asia region. Artists´ independent journals and research based publishing projects that act as important platforms for the development of local knowledge and discourse, will be spread all over AM´s shop, including: SentAp magazine, Narratives in Malaysian Art (Volume 1), Past Peripheral: Curation in South East Asia, Studio Bibliotheque, among others.

To Bring the World into the World is made possible through the financial support of the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council. The project is collaboration between Gendai Vectors initiative, InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Centre and Art Metropole.
