A netted mind-map made with nodes and lines, marking the records of contact between Taiwan and its surroundings since the 17th century, from natural resource extraction under colonial policies to propaganda films under militarism, the lines between the nodes connect the relationship between different worlds. 一張透過線與節點連接成網的心智圖表,上面的節點標記著著自17世紀以來台灣島嶼與周邊的接觸紀錄,從殖民政策下的自然資源開採到軍國主義下的宣傳電影,節點之間的線,連接著不同世界之間的關聯。

Pailang Museum of Settler Colonialism
Wu Chi-Yu

Pailang Museum of Settler Colonialism (2022–), or The Pailang Museum, is a Sinophone media collective that commissions speculative writing, screening programs and decolonial guided tours along with experimental film production. The word pailang is Chinese-Hokkein pronunciation of “villains” commonly used by Taiwanese Indigenous groups to call their settler counterpart: Chinese-Formosan.

While pailang is no longer a pejorative term, the settler colonialism structure has persistent effects, and has largely been embedded in the texture of everyday life. With our aim to experiment with a denaturalized presentation of the settler gaze and its historicity, the Pailang Museum serves as an active platform in narrating a plethora of ways in which settler colonial subjects organise land and, as it were, its species.
