To stay connected and creative, we are presenting our latest programme Displaced Belongings online for free. From 8 May till 30 May 20, this programme will be available to watch worldwide on our website. We would like to specially thanks all featured artists for helping us to make this possible. We hope everyone safe and enjoy this programme.

Displaced Belongings presents six recent film and video works by Asian artists that explore the complex nature of identity. Artists respond to personal and global experiences, such as war and memory, ejection from home and expression of sexual identity to inform their filmmaking. Drawing a dialogue through themes such as gender, race, class and self-image, artists express their identities, uncovering and recovering memories to analyse daily life.
