Tofu Collective (DK)

Tofu Collective is an association devoted to promoting Sinophone contemporary art through transnational initiatives. Tofu refers to the blank box (☐) appearing as a placeholder when using a Latin-letter font not compatible with Sinitic scripts. As a publishing house, community-building platform and non-profit gallery-runner, Tofu Collective works to bring meaning into this void, bridging the gap that separates East and West. In doing so, they work to create an inclusive platform that can bring new cutting-edge perspectives to the European art scene in collaboration with a network of art institutions and professionals affiliated with the Chinese-speaking regions, diasporas, and communities.
