Summarization of Content

Exhibition catalogue for the exhibition traversals curated by Norman Jackson Ford in collaboration with Klaus Pamminger and Susanne Gamauf, Fotogalerie Wien. It was the product of the work by individuals involved in the project Re-Considered Crossings: Representations Beyond Hybridity, which was an arts and cutlural exchange between Hong Kong and Vienna from October 2001 to February 2002. The exhibition was held at the Fotogalrie, Wien, Vienna, Austria (2001 Oct 3 - 2001 Nov 2); the WUK Festival, (Oct 2001); Fringe Club Galleries and Para/Site Art Space, Hong Kong, (2002 Jan 15 - 2002 Feb 09); and at the City Festival, (2002). 

The project involved over 30 artists, academics, curators, and cultural workrts looking at the notion of 'traversal', the movement from one space to the next and to carefully look over and consider something. The book also includes essays by Norman Jackson Ford, Alice Ming Wai Jim, Ramesh Kumart Biswas, Laurent Gutierrez, and Valerie Portefaix, investigating theoretical concerns, context and contemporary meditations associated with the project.
