Jakarta-based artist collective ruangrupa staged Toko Pura-Pura as a play on ‘toko rupa-rupa,’ or ‘assorted shop’—where many of Hong Kong’s Indonesian domestic workers’ daily needs are met. Utilising old and new archives, the shop served as a transactional space where knowledge and ideas were exchanged through collaborations with Hong Kong-based artists, musicians, designers, and cultural initiatives.

Udlot-udlot was organised by Hong Kong-based independent curator Inti Guerrero to present video pieces, short films, and artefacts by Pio Abad, Anand Patwardhan, Jan Švankmajer, and Koki Tanaka in the Asia Art Archive Library. His intervention was based on different possible ideological readings of Udlot-udlot, a 1972 large-scale sound performance by Philippines new-music composer José Maceda (1917–2004) documented in AAA’s Roberto Chabet Archive.

Guangzhou-based Hu Fang and Zhang Wei intervened into the AAA library stacks with Untitled (for redundant books), a selection of books inspired by experimental botany, farming, architecture, and gardening philosophy that activate alternative readings of the AAA collection. Responses to the texts were gathered and shared through a series of reading groups, field trips, and conversations.
