The annual Kunsthalle Wien Prize in cooperation with the University of Applied Arts Vienna and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna goes to Ting-Jung Chen and Hui Ye. In the exhibition Keep me close to you the two artists discuss current as well as historic forms of transmission of immaterial goods across political and ideological boundaries – specifically those of Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China, their countries of origin.
