Since 2005, Zhuang Wubin has been using photography, oral history and archival work to unpack the experiences of “Chineseness” in Southeast Asia and Hong Kong. In this sharing session, Zhuang begins with his two projects, Chinese Muslims in Indonesia (2007-09) and Chinese in the Small Towns and Rural Areas of Southeast Asia (2010-ongoing). He would use the created images to unpack and intersect “Chineseness” with religion, place and class. He would also attempt to connect the photo projects with his interest as a writer researching about the praxis of photography across the region. More on Wubin’s work can be accessed here:
