adocumenta is a documentation project on contemporary Asian art and artists. It utilizes new documentation mechanism of wiki like the one used in wikipedia.org. It encourages open content and open editing in the global art era. We are witnessing the rise of contemporary Asian art and its dynamic development in global art world. Like much of Asia, much is in transition and it is hard to find accurate and current information. aDocumenta is an effort to realize organic documentation and encourage an open collaboration.
By the nature of wiki mechanism, it invites regional documentation and random discovery enabling grass-root categorizations like folksonomy as well as open tagging. As aDocumenta web site utilizes multilingual content machine, this gives its users better syndication of regional news and updates. Adocumenta provides a common platform to organize, share, and edit knowledge globally and organically with regional contexts to anyone who is interested in contemporary Asian art and beyond.
We seek broad participations as well as regional agents; regional aDocumenta curators who will plan and curates theme-based editions. aDocumenta encourages peer-review and open collaboration in accurate documentation and the GPL Free Documentation We are looking for collaborators and curators to expand documentations of local and global scenes. You could be art student, artist, art historian, curator, cultural program organizer, and anybody who are interested in joining us and collaborate.
Come and join our documentation community and contribute.
