The Kunsthalle Wien Prize 2018 goes to two artists who hail from a cultural sphere
that has been riven by a sharp political divide since the end of the Chinese Civil war
in 1949: from the People’s Republic of China and the island nation of Taiwan (officially
known as the “Republic of China”). The two honorees agreed on the title Keep me
close to you for their diverse explorations of current as well as historic forms of the
transmission of immaterial goods across both countries’ respective political and
ideological boundaries.
