In this chapter we move from the postcolonial moment to the implications of economic and cultural globalisation, the tension between local and global imperatives, and artists’ responses to the effects of this new structure. Case studies address the personal histories, contexts and art of Kimsooja from South Korea; Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan from the Philippines; and Oscar Ho Hing-kay and John Young Zerunge from Hong Kong. All are articulate critics of, and contributors to, contemporary cultural and social practice; and all have engaged thoughtfully and critically, and developed a radical cultural practice that sheds light on their historical and contemporary contexts.
