Asia Art Archive marks its 15th year by extending 15 Invitations to creative practitioners to look within and beyond the organization as an archive, a collection of material, a digital platform, and a node in a wider collective network. The “15 Invitations” will take various sizes, forms, and directions—literary, polemic, political, sonic, physical, and digital—and function as a series of “drop pins” to alternatively navigate where AAA originated and where it may be going. AAA’s e-journal “Field Notes” will trace the 15 participants as they contribute notes and entries to document the process, resulting in a final print publication.

Zoe Butt formerly of Sàn Art in Ho Chi Minh City, and facilitator of AAA’s 2011 Mobile Library programme in Vietnam, contributed a text to AAA’s e-journal Field Notes. Butt looks at Practising Friendship as a platform that is integral to the longevity of particular kinds of arts infrastructures. Concentrating on those considered independent, ‘alternative,’ and archival in spirit, Butt also investigates a method of working strategically under conditions with political or cultural restrictions.
