MUJIN-TO Production is participating in the new platform “SOUTH SOUTH” focusing on Global South.
As the inauguration event of “SOUTH SOUTH”, “SOUTH SOUTH VEZA” will be held from February 23rd to March 7th.
“VEZA,” which means “display, create, or publish” in Zulu, one of South Africa’s official languages, offers a live-style sales event utilizing auction technology and online viewing room (OVR).
50 galleries from more than 40 cities in 30 countries will participate and introduce the art from Global South on the “SOUTH SOUTH” platform.
This is a proposal for a new experiment and platform in a situation where the Northern Hemisphere has been the center of politics, economy, and culture.
In addition to OVR, talks by prominent curators, film programs, and specially curated project featuring iconic works will be released.
In addition, along with the launch of “SOUTH SOUTH”, four participating galleries in Tokyo (Blum & Poe, Taka Ishii Gallery, Take Ninagawa, and MUJIN-TO Production) will have onsite exhibition “SOUTH SOUTH TOKYO”, shuffling the artists of each gallery in their respective spaces between February 26 to March 3.
* Please check the business hours of each gallery on each gallery’s website. MUJIN-TO Production is open 7 days a week during the exhibition (Monday-Friday: 13:00 – 19:00, Saturday and Sunday: 12:00 – 18:00).
We hope you enjoy the online as well as the onsite exhibition.

The word ‘homeland’ evokes a physical and permanent form on the surface, yet when we dive a little deeper into our memories and emotions, the word urges us to reflect on its complex and shifting nature. The inaugural exhibition of HOMELAND in TRANSIT in 2019 channeled narratives of ‘homeland’ from Hong Kong perspectives: the floating islands, borders and boundaries, unfolding histories of diaspora, the metamorphosis of cultural identity, colonial ideology and beyond.
In only a few months, our world has changed dramatically and each word in this title has developed a wider scope of meanings and expanded relevance: we feel an urgent need to further communicate and encourage more exchanges and discussions. The HOMELAND in TRANSIT VIDEO TALKS launched in Basel in February 2020 continues the exchange and leads to the next exhibition taking place at MOMENTUM, Kunstquartier Bethanien, Berlin in October 2020 with time-based works by 7 artists from Hong Kong and a Berlin-based Japanese artist exploring the notions of migration, self-searching, cultural identity, memory, and our resilience as humans. An intrinsic and characteristic element of Hong Kong – water – occupies a strong presence.
