Scope and Content

DVD containing the colour single-channel video installation 'Military Court and Prison' by Chen Chieh-jen.

The work consists of two videos examining the artist's experiences of growing under the Kuomintang dictatorship in Taiwan and the years Martial Law (1947-1987). The first video looked at the artist's memories of growing up in Taipei near a prison which held political prisoners and the military court. The second video represents the official vision of the government regarding the years of the dictatorship and Martial Law in Taiwan. The work looks at the complex political, social and cultural factors that underlie Taiwanese society, tracing the places of artist's childhood and the memory of his country.
