About

      


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.

N°1 THE LOST SOCIETY ︎︎︎





The Importance of Tea
Mary Jean Chan  






As an introductory remark, the exploration unfolds through a poem written by Dr Mary-Jean Chan, a Senior Lecturer at Oxford Brookes University. She recreates a scene of misunderstanding incurred by cultural differences through a daily conversation. Her poem opens up the topic of cross-cultural mistranslation and individual identity displacement.
