The “Keywords School” is a project based on the continuous investigation and research of “keywords” by the Chinese artist Xu Tan. Underway since 2006, the project’s central premise of communication between audience and artist/art project now takes the form of “school”. The content of this school is “keywords”, terms gathered from Xu Tan’s persistent searching and researching through interviews and discussions among people from different fields and backgrounds.
This handbook is published in conjunction with Xu Tan’s project ‘Keywords School’ at the 53rd International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. The material for this book was collected from Keywords School activities in Stockholm which involved 10 days of lectures.
