In 1992, Taiwan and China reached the „1992 Consensus“, a semi-official political meeting between both countries which helped to ease the tense relationship between these two nations. From 2005, the first direct flights since 1949 were allowed and today there is a vivid exchange between Taiwan and Mainland China. Taipei has rebranded itself as design city, creating creative places like the Huashan Creative Park, which are frequented by many Taiwanese. Despite the calm surface, many Taiwanese are „anxious“ that one day their country will be invaded by their bigger brother, and that there would be no chance to withstand the overwhelmingly strong army of the PRC.
Anxious is the result of an open call of the Taipei Museum of Contemporary Art which yielded a few hundred entries within a few hours.
