Asia Art Archive welcomes Slavs and Tatars as our residents.

Berlin-based collective Slavs and Tatars investigate 'the translation of Islam into China and Confucianism' during their research residency with AAA intermittently from October 2015 through December 2016, and exhibit their own reference books alongside art and ephemera for the Free Parking: Art Libraries from Elsewhere (2–28 Nov 2015) programme series in the AAA Library. 
 
Slavs and Tatars is a faction of polemics and intimacies devoted to an area east of the former Berlin Wall and west of the Great Wall of China known as Eurasia. The collective's work spans several media, disciplines, and a broad spectrum of cultural registers (high and low). The collective's practice consists primarily of three activities: exhibitions, publications, and lecture-performances. 

Presented by Asia Art Archive and hosted by Spring Workshop.
