NON NATIVE NATIVE FAIR is an online event that brings together Asian creative cultural practitioners from various backgrounds and disciplines to participate in an experimental online trade fair environment.
Non Native Native is a cultural platform which looks into the Asian creative landscape in The Netherlands through the lens of the outsiders from within. The platform serves as an alternative point of exchange for critical creative practitioners between the Asian and European cultural landscape with the focus on contemporary visual culture. For the first edition of the NNN FAIR, co-curated with Berlin-based sōydivision and un.thai.tled, we proudly present projects which investigate the relationships and positions of Asian diasporas in Europe represented as exchangeable goods. This can be an artwork, publication, product, service, performance, crowdfunding project, or anything that the maker introduces as a subject of market exchange, an alternative narrative as well as an instrument for deepening dialogues on Asia.
All activities will be broadcasted on the online platform, along with additional information about the programme, participants, and webshop. The online platform is intended to act as a virtual fairground, where audiences and participants are encouraged to interact with each other.
During the Opening Weekend (26–27 June 2021), all participants will be conducting an online presentation session, with interactive 'live' components inspired by teleshopping channels, including on-the-spot discount codes, phone-in sessions, live chats. All sessions are expected to be an in-depth presentation of stories behind the products and services offered.
Participants based in The Netherlands will be invited to broadcast their presentation from WORM Rotterdam, while sōydivision and un.thai.tled will be curating and broadcasting the Berlin-based programme. Participants from outside The Netherlands and Berlin will present live from their own location.
