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.

The Lost Society
Ye Wuji

The research focus of Ye Wuji is on Central Asia. When confronting the gigantic and complex geopolitical context of Central Asia, he initiated the “Palovosh Society”, an organisation disarming oneself through a delicious rice dish. The Society is the optime of Eurasian revolutions. Alternating in the confluences of fiction and non-fiction, his narrative elaborates on a crucial turning point in the development of Central Asia.
