An interactive exhibition drawing back the curtain on the historic
buildings of the National Taiwan Museum and surrounding area kicked off Dec. 22 in Taipei City.
“Musemble City: An Experiencing Project for Modernity” comprises films and photographs of NTM and 45 other structures including National Taiwan University Hospital, Zhongshan Hall and the former headquarters of the National Taiwan Science Education Center.
The buildings are divided into six categories: abandoned sites, commercial complexes, educational institutions, factories, government offices and public plazas.
According to NTM Director Chen Chi-min, these old facilities play a key role in the formation of Taipei’s political, economic and cultural landscape and form collective memories among its populace. “The event helps document the growth of the city while offering a comprehensive overview of its cultural development for locals and visitors alike.” [FULL STORY]
