For this edition of the Proxy Conference, the four members of AFSAR, namely Mooni Perry, Hanwen Zhang, Eugene Park, and Yu’an Huang, will meet in person for the first time at Asymmetry HQ. The practitioners will open a discussion on the durational, trans-local, and manifold strategies to deviate from the homogenous narrative fronted by the ESEA communities in the UK and EU context. While reading through a map that guides participants through the conference, the group will give a collective presentation on the methodologies underlying the foundation of AFSAR, then delve into the individual practices of its members that expand on pertinent themes of translations, Asian Feminism, speculative fantasy, and digital transnational communities.

*This is a hybrid event. It will take place physically at the Asymmetry HQ, while live streaming will be hosted on ease contemporary’s Instagram account (@eseacontemporary).
