WAR is a state of mind, WAR is a reality, WAR is a business, WAR is a culture, WAR is a lifestyle, WAR is a burden, WAR is a state of emergency, WAR is a plague, WAR is a crisis…

爭戰是一股心境,一層現實,一筆生意,一種文化,一款生活方式,爭戰是生命的負擔、是急難、是瘟疫、是重重危機。。。

When I look at around us in this beginning of year 2016: WAR is everywhere. After the 2015 January and November terrorist attacks in Paris, France and many other countries are at WAR…

2016年初始,看看世界,爭戰無處不在。巴黎於去年一月和十一月遭受恐攻之後,法國和全球諸多國家一樣,正陷入戰爭泥淖。。。

Recently, Shinzo Abe, Japan’s Prime Minister offered his most sincere apologies for the use of “women of comfort” by Japanese soldiers during WAR time against South Korea…

近來,日本首相安倍晉三為二戰時期日軍徵召女性為「慰安婦」,向韓國至上深摯歉意。。。

In Taiwan, WAR is still present in most of men’s life under the form of the “military service”. More generally, WAR is rampant in our lifestyle because WAR is business, and sometimes WAR is also an entertainment.  For instance, Hollywood movie industry just served us the 7th episode of “STAR WARS” movie earlier this year…

在台灣,多數男性在「服兵役」時穿上戰事演練意味濃厚的軍服。普遍而言,爭戰是一種剪不斷理還亂的生活形態,因為爭戰是一門生意,有時還是一樣娛樂事業。比如,好萊塢影視產業於今年稍早剛為我們提供了《星際大戰7:原力覺醒》這部大片。。。

WAR is also a game. During the 2016 Taipei Game Show event earlier this year, a large number of video games produced are based on WAR context. Nowadays, players can do virtual war with virtual enemies and virtual casualties…

戰爭也是遊戲。早前舉辦的2016台北遊戲展中,數量龐大的遊戲設計以戰爭為主題。截至今日,玩家已經可以在虛擬實境的戰爭遊戲中砍殺擬真敵軍、造成擬真傷亡。。。

Indeed as you can see, we live an era where WAR is everywhere. Does that mean that we have a lot of enemies to fight or this is just a fascinating context to explore our fantasies?

如前所述,我們正身臨一個爭戰無處不在的時代。是因為我們有太多的敵人需要面對?抑或者這僅僅是個探索我們虛構幻想的有趣命題?

We believe that WAR could be many different things at the same time. In this issue, we want to present our perception of WAR. Under the command of the photographer Stephane Ferrero, we explore the WAR imagery in a unique fashion story in collaboration with the Taiwanese fashion label FABITORIA. To go beyond images and visuals, we review WAR as a rampant trend in Music, Cinema and Literature… If you ready to fight, join our artistic guerilla!

爭鬥、爭執、對抗、或戰爭,可以以多元的面貌同時並存。本期的內容裡,我們嘗試以我們的角度詮釋此一主題。在攝影師史第芬.費雷諾的帶領下,我們和台灣時尚品牌 FABITORIA 合作,呈現了探索戰爭形象的獨特時尚專題。除了視覺影像,爭戰的議題也持續在音樂、電影、文學的領域不斷發酵。。。如果你也準備好了,歡迎加入我們的藝術游擊隊!
