N°1 The Lost Society


There cannot be more possibilities and layers of complexity embodied in food throughout human development. On one hand, it constructed a system that assembles taste, cultural memory and historical movements; on the other hand, the correlation between food and geography provides a hidden motivation to examine human behaviours and social transformation. This inaugural issue of te magazine adopts Ye Wuji's "The Lost Society" as the central theme. The term "lost" means ephemeral silence and enfeeblement rather than disappearance and extinction. This means that many cultures only dissipated temporarily, and some are metamorphised. Food happens to witness this transition, and the word "society" refers to a collective destiny. In this issue, we invited 13 creative practitioners of different disciplines — to bring in and reflect upon their respective expertise, knowledge system and research trajectories from and in anthropology, sociology, and contemporary art — to explore food as a multi-faceted intricacy, at the same time reconstruct the relationship between food and geography.

2020 年年末,疫情似乎彻底改变了我们的生活,所有的国际旅行被尽数取消,与各国朋友的交流也只能通过网络,这种联系方式变得脆弱。我们几乎断掉了与世界其他地区的实质性连接,这种“失联”不仅充满着不确定性,也使我们在一定程度上丢失了旁观的视角, 以至于不知道自己究竟身处于怎样的位置。 另外,在宏观层面上,全球演化出了不同形式的地区主义与民族主义,大家各说各话,“隔离”仿佛成了世界上唯一的通用词。人们被迫分隔在各自的孤岛,在虚拟世界的一端感受着愈演愈烈的意识形态之争。我们不奢望去重新连接世界,但期望打造出一个帮助不同领域的研究者和创作者沟通的平台,并为他/她们的思考沉淀提供出口。te 可能是一颗探路石,是对未知领域的试探与碰撞,目的是制造出一个致力于当下的对话空间。《te》取自闽南语“茶”的发音:[dæ],该音系统佐证了早期全球化的流动轨迹,从泉州港为起点的海上丝绸之路到达欧洲,成为人们熟知的 tea。tea 的发音在今天依然鲜活,然而我们大多已忘记其词源,也无意追溯它的转化过程。于是,我们期望打造一本具有“流动性” 的刊物,流动性代表着当代文化的一种生存状态,也指向联动的实践倾向,我们希望以写作和记录的方式激活这种实践,并在物质发展与文化观念二者的脱节中捕捉藏匿其中的现象,生产出新的话语。

由新锐平面设计师杨灿设计的创刊号《失落的协会》邀请了13位不同领域的创作者,以食物的角度切入人类学、社会学、当代艺术的流变现象并进行反思,旨在揭示食物在不同研究动线中附着的多重概念,同时也将食物与地缘的关系打破重组。食物在人类发展的过程中从未产生过如此多的可能性与复杂性,一方面,它构筑了集合着味觉、文化记忆和历史变迁的体系;另一方面,食物与地域的相互关系是研究人类行为和社会转型的隐藏动机。te的创刊号以叶无忌撰写的”失落的协会“作为主题,“失落”并不指失去和消亡,而是暂时的沉寂与失势。也就是,很多所谓的文化只是暂时性地隐迹,有些则转换成了另一种表象。食物恰好是这一流变的最好例证,而“协会”也指向一种命运共同体。

 

About te magazine

te is an annual bilingual publication on contemporary arts and cultural anthropology. Based on specific themes of each issue, we commission practitioners from different expertise to explore the dynamic cultural landscape between regions. The topics include the fluidity of cultures, languages and ideas in specific communities and the adaptation of individual narratives to the shifting social environment and geopolitics.

te aims to create an open and shared creative platform. The content can range from written articles, interviews, poems and photographs etc. We would also love to include manuscripts, notes, archives and other first-hand materials that documents or go along with the outcome. We hope to see the provided content as an extension of the author's daily practice; at the same time, we look forward to generating new forms of content through communication with the author.

《te》是一本关于当代文化人类学的双语年刊,其每一期会根据特定主题,委托来自不同领域的创作者探讨地域之间的动态文化景观,包括地方社群的语言、传统、和文化在当下不断更迭的状态,以及个体叙事如何因社会环境和地缘政治的发展而变动。
