By the 17th century, various imperial powers started to investigate and discover Taiwan. This exhibition aims, through how maps, landscape paintings, goods produced in different stages, to convey Taiwan’s history from two aspects. The first is revisiting the historical documents made from an “outsider’s gaze” that reflected how the Dutch East India Company, the Qing dynasty and the Empire of Japan explored Taiwan’s geography and social customs. The second is focusing on the “local agency,”which indicated how people living in Taiwan after being ruled by different empires gradually formed a collective consciousness, acquired knowledge and skills, and developed their own discourse.
