How Woodcut Carving Speaks Truth to Power
 

 

Woodcut carving and printmaking occupies an interesting space within visual arts, as it crosses the lines between the traditional and the modern, between folk art and contemporary art. A current exhibition called “Carving Reality” features works from Malaysia, Indonesia, East Timor, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan, and spotlights the emergence of social realist woodcuts in East Asia. We speak with the exhibition’s curator Krystie Ng about the movement’s history, and why woodcut carving is often a means of criticising imbalances of societal and political power.

Free Trade Vital Especially During A Pandemic

International trade has functioned as the lifeblood of our globalised society for decades. However, in recent years, it has been on the decline, with governments increasingly adopting more protectionist policies and the Covid-19 pandemic also contriving to rock global supply chains. What will the future of international trade look like and where does the World Trade Organisation fit into this new landscape? We speak to Simon Evenett, Professor of International Trade at the University of St. Galen, to find out more.

Australia - An American Lackey In Trade Spat?

Australia - An American Lackey In Trade Spat?

Can Australia survive a trade war against China?

A new kind of trade war may be brewing in the East as tensions between China and Australia increased drastically over the past few weeks. Last week, China imposed anti-dumping duties of up to 212% on Australian wine, the latest in a slew of measures curbing imports from coal and copper to barley. This led to the Australian government hinting over the weekend that it might bring a formal case against China at the World Trade Organisation.

Tensions then escalated further after a Chinese Foreign Ministry official tweeted a fake photo of an Australian soldier holding a knife to the throat of an Afghan child, referring to alleged to war crimes. This led to Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison reprimanding China and calling for the country to apologize.

So what's the background of this conflict and where could it go? We speak to Dr Pradeep Taneja to find out.
