Access to online museum for Tiananmen victims “restricted to Hong Kong” https://temescalartscenter.org/access-to-online-museum-for-tiananmen-victims-restricted-to-hong-kong/ Thu, 30 Sep 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://temescalartscenter.org/access-to-online-museum-for-tiananmen-victims-restricted-to-hong-kong/ An online museum dedicated to victims of the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre has been censored in Hong Kong, site administrators said.

An online museum dedicated to victims of the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre has been censored in Hong Kong, site administrators said.

The website 8964museum.com was launched in August by the Hong Kong Alliance in support of China’s democratic patriotic movements. Entitled “June 4 Memorial Human Rights Museum,” the website was created after authorities closed the physical exhibit in June following a licensing investigation.

Users have not been able to access the museum online since September 23, site administrators said. They believe this is yet another crackdown from China.

“It is a shameful act to erase historical memory,” the museum said online, according to Reuters.

Discussions around China’s 1989 crackdown on student-led pro-democracy protests in Beijing remain heavily censored. But censorship is new to Hong Kong, where annual vigils have been held for decades. They have been banned for the past two years due to coronavirus concerns.

The Hong Kong Alliance, which holds these annual vigils, is already under investigation under the controversial National Security Act. The June 4 memorial’s physical exhibit was closed in June due to a licensing investigation, and the organization’s assets and bank accounts were frozen.

Authorities have not confirmed whether the website has been censored due to the ongoing investigation against the Hong Kong Alliance.

However, city police said national security legislation states that “police may require service providers to take action to ban email messages posted on electronic platforms that may endanger security. national “.

The Hong Kong Alliance was formed after the 1989 massacres in Tiananmen Square. The museum was dedicated to the thousands of people killed on June 4, 1989, when the People’s Liberation Army attacked protesters and those trying to block the army’s advance in Tiananmen Square with troops and tanks.

Since 2019, the group has faced legal action, with police accusing it of inciting violence and of being “an agent of foreign forces”. Two of the group’s leaders are among pro-democracy activists arrested for participating in protests in 2019. Nine activists were arrested and sentenced to ten months in prison for participating in the forbidden vigil in Tiananmen Square last year.

The alliance denied the allegations but decided to disband earlier this month after continued pressure.

Hong Kong has traditionally enjoyed greater internet freedom than mainland China, where access to foreign social media platforms and news sites is blocked. But with the new security law imposed in 2020 by Beijing, there has been more censorship.

Experts said the crackdown and censorship put an end to Hong Kong’s “One Country, Two Systems” model.

In August, the Hong Kong Civil Human Rights Front, the city’s largest civil society group that led the 2019 protests, was also forced to disband after more than 20 years of operations.

HONG KONG – Access to an online museum dedicated to victims of the 1989 Chinese crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in and around Beijing’s Tiananmen Square appears to be restricted in Hong Kong, website accusing censorship authorities .

The Hong Kong Alliance in Support of China’s Democratic Patriotic Movements, organizers of the June 4 annual vigils in the world financial center, announced the opening of “Museum 8964” last month. The website operated independently of the Alliance, he said.

Hong Kong users have not been able to access the website from the city since Thursday without using virtual private networks. Internet service provider PCCW declined to comment. Suppliers HKBN and 3HK did not respond to requests for comment.

“It is a shameful act to erase historical memory,” the museum said online in a statement.

Hong Kong police said they could not comment on individual cases, but said national security legislation states that “the police may require service providers to take action to ban email messages. published on electronic platforms likely to endanger national security “.

As the internet in mainland China is heavily censored and access to social media platforms and foreign news sites is blocked, Hong Kong residents have so far enjoyed greater freedoms under the ” one country, two systems ”agreed when the former British colony returned to China. reigned in 1997.

The first case of censorship under Beijing’s security law imposed on the city in 2020 emerged in January when authorities blocked access to HK Chronicles, a website inspired by the anti-government protests in Hong Kong in 2019 that have published the personal information of the police.

The physical location of the June 4 museum in Hong Kong closed in June following a licensing investigation and has since been added to a list of assets and bank accounts frozen by authorities in the part of a national security investigation against the Alliance.

The organization announced last week that it would disband after police accused her of being “an agent of foreign forces”, raided the museum premises and accused the group of inciting subversion under of the National Security Act.

The Alliance, which denies the allegations, was the last of a dozen civil society organizations to withdraw in the past year.

Its leaders Albert Ho and Lee Cheuk-yan, like dozens of other pro-democracy activists and politicians, are in jail for the 2019 protests and also face national security charges.

Hong Kong authorities have repeatedly denied restricting human rights and freedoms, saying law enforcement is evidence-based and has nothing to do with background, profession or belief policies of those arrested.

Hong Kong traditionally holds the world’s largest annual June 4 vigil, although police have banned the latter two events due to coronavirus concerns. Mainland China bans commemorations and heavily censors the subject.

China has never provided a full account of the 1989 crackdown. Authorities gave a death toll of around 300 days after, but rights groups and witnesses say thousands may have been killed. -be killed.

Whether or not you are currently locked out, many of the world’s most exciting and wonderful attractions are currently off-limits. Fortunately – in these times of self-isolation, social distancing and closed borders – many museums, galleries and monuments around the world offer virtual tours.

Want to browse the collections of the National Gallery of Victoria? See the Smithsonian dinosaur fossils? Discover the Sistine Chapel? It’s just as easy by clicking a few buttons. Whether you fancy exploring Japan’s bright digital art museum or viewing cute creatures in a zoo, you can spend a night – or a day – at a museum, gallery, or other place of cultural significance in the comfort of your sofa.

Here are ten highlights to get you started – and if you like others, Google Arts and Culture will point you towards even more.

cp line

THE LOUVRE

Nothing really compares to visiting the Louvre and standing in front of the Mona Lisa yourself, your eyes roaming the enigmatic smile of the work painted by Leonardo da Vinci. Now, for the first time, the Parisian place allows you to live it virtually with a Mona Lisa VR experience. If you’re equipped with a next-level VR setup, you can explore many of the gallery’s exhibits online. Via sound virtual options, stroll through exhibitions exploring the relationship between art and political power, Renaissance works of art and myths told through art.

cp line

VAN GOGH MUSEUM

If you missed Van Gogh Alive’s first round of Australian exhibitions, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam is home to the largest collection of the artist’s work in the world, including over 200 paintings, 500 drawings and 750 letters. It’s a large table, which you can look at yourself via Virtual tour of Google Arts & Culture. Yes, Sunflowers is one of them, although there is much inimitable art also on display in his other still lifes, landscapes and other painted scenes. Move at your own pace, then zoom in to see details and read the accompanying descriptive plaques. And if you want to get a glimpse first, you can check out the museum YouTube visit also.

cp line

TEAMLAB SANS FRONTIERS DIGITAL ART MUSEUM

The word ‘immersive’ is used too often these days, but if anywhere deserves the term, it’s TeamLab’s borderless digital art museum. Sprawled out in a Tokyo warehouse, this eye-catching place fills every available surface with moving, shifting and interactive artwork – so you can watch the flowers bloom on the floor, walls and ceiling; then sit back and watch the ocean waves crash across a room; then walk through the illuminated water lilies. Or, thanks to its wide range of Youtube videos, you can get a taste of her vibrant installations right from your home. TeamLab’s online archive also includes documents from its many other exhibits beyond the borders of its Tokyo base, and while each is only a minute or two long, there is plenty to choose from. Also make sure your sound is on.

cp line

THE SMITHSONIAN

As you experience a historic global event, why not spend some time exploring the natural history of the planet? That’s what the Smithsonian is all about, with over 145 million specimens and artifacts in its collections. And while you can’t see them all in her online visit, you can virtually browse its current, previous and permanent views. It means dinosaurs, of course. Watching the spikes of a Stegosaurus or the face of a Tyrannosaurus Rex is always so impressive when you do it through your phone or computer. It also means everything from butterflies and bones to gems and the origins of mankind – and, if that’s not too dark for you right now, there’s also an exhibit dedicated to epidemics, epidemics and the spread of disease.

cp line

NATIONAL GALLERY OF VICTORIA

Perhaps you are a Melburnian who wanted to visit the current major exhibitions of the National Gallery of Victoria. You may live elsewhere, but you’ve taken a trip to the Victorian capital in the future, including the NGV. With the gallery currently closed, this is obviously irrelevant; However, you can still take a peek at last year’s blockbuster. Triennial, the Tiwi Islands off Darwin and Japanese modernism. Head to the new NGV channel, where curatorial tours are added to the online library on an ongoing basis. A whopping 75,000 pieces of the CNG collection are also available, so you will really feel like you are there.

SAO PAULO ART MUSEUM

Think you know what all museums and art galleries look like in general terms? Think again. The Museu de Arte de São Paulo, or MASP, doesn’t just put its many works of art on its walls. Instead, he places them on sheets of crystal anchored by concrete blocks, in a design meant to mimic an artist’s easel, then spreads them out in large cavernous rooms. It makes looking at the site’s paintings, sculptures, photographs, and other items a whole different experience, even when you’re doing it online. If you take the tour via the Google Arts and Culture for iOS or Android, you can also explore a VR component to really feel like you’re there.

THE SISTINE CHAPEL

The Sistine Chapel has as many breathtaking works of art as any other gallery or museum. More than some, in fact. And, via the Vatican Online Tour, you can walk it for as long as you want – and admire the immense detail in Michelangelo’s wall-to-wall frescoes, of course – with no crowds or time limits. These pieces have sparkled for more than five centuries and, as everyone knows, they make quite a spectacle. Once you are done browsing, scrolling and zooming, you can also explore other Vatican Museums, Wings and Chapels thanks to the rest of its virtual offers. If you are not only fond of art and sculpture, but also architecture, then prepare to be in your element.

cp line

SYDNEY OPERA

When it comes to visiting the Sydney Opera House without visiting it physically, there are several viewing options available online. Take the 360 degree tour, and you can walk through Australia’s most iconic monument at your own pace – and also discover a number of exhibitions online. You can watch the YouTube video tour accompanied by a soundtrack that usually resonates in opera houses, or broadcast a range of concerts and lectures on its new streaming service. No matter how you explore, you’ll see the place like you’ve never seen it before, which is one of the joys of going virtual. You can’t look around every nook and cranny while you’re at it, but, via remote means, who is going to stop you?

cp line

BLARNEY CASTLE

Who doesn’t want to be locked in a castle now? Dating back to 1210 originally and 1446 in its present form, Irish Castle at Blarney is among the best of them – and, as the name suggests, it is home to a very famous attraction. Sitting atop its tower, the Blarney Stone is believed to endow anyone who embraces it with the gift of eloquence. You can’t virtually lock your lips with it, of course, but maybe looking at the site in general will do the same? On the castle online visit, you’ll also explore its stony interiors and sprawling gardens (and you’ll probably feel like you’ve fallen into an episode of Game Of Thrones).

cp line

SAN DIEGO ZOO

Sometimes it’s enough to watch adorable animals go about their business. In fact, as the endless stream of cat and dog videos on the internet shows, there’s never a bad time to lock your peepers on a cute creature. Absolutely everyone feels that way, because of course it does – that’s where Live webcams from the San Diego Zoo, who scan several animal enclosures throughout the day, enter. Watch majestic elephants swinging their trunks, watch African penguins frolic and see polar bears dozing merrily. You can also catch monkeys and baboons for your monkey fix, see condors flying, and get a fix of big cats in the tiger enclosure. Oh, and if you want to spend some time watching an Australian animal, there’s a koala camera as well.

The cultural impact of the COVID-19 pandemic was analyzed by researchers at WMG, University of Warwick in collaboration with OUMNH (Oxford University Museum of Natural History) who, in the article titled “Digital Responses of UK Museum Exhibition to the COVID-19 Crisis March-June 2020 ‘published in the journal Curator: Le Journal du Musée, analyzed the success of online museum exhibitions and explored what the future holds for museums.

The researchers analyzed 21 museums that had temporary exhibitions due to open between March and June 2020, and decided to go ahead with the exhibition virtually. The analysis consisted of noting how COVID was considered, how the content was presented and discussing the themes of access, embodiment and human connection.

The research team found that in May-June, museums had more online content for their exhibits, suggesting that it was time to prepare for the transfer of the exhibit online. All of the exhibits were different, with some hosting podcasts, others doing film tours, and others hosting a virtual room where you click on the exhibits.

Although the digital exhibits have been successful, the researchers concluded that the online exhibits do not provide the same social and embodied experience as the physical museum, as you miss the travel there, from the hospitality of the staff, to the to chat with other visitors and shop for souvenirs or coffee afterwards.

They pointed out, however, that additional material was provided for online content that is traditionally not presented at the Museum, including behind-the-scenes videos for example. Researchers say this suggests museums were trying to give their audiences exclusives they wouldn’t get from a normal visit.

Lead author, PhD student Ellie King of WMG, University of Warwick, comments:

“The COVID-19 lockdowns have created a crucial turning point in the museum sector as they now see themselves working in a physical-digital overlap. It is interesting to note how, forced to close, museums have focused their online arrangements on exhibits.

“Museums and galleries will continue to adapt in light of a post-COVID world where practices, both digital and physical, will undoubtedly change. It is important to see the world of digital exhibition as an opportunity to provide original materials and to attract audiences who cannot visit in person. “

While it’s likely there will now be more online material generated by museums and galleries due to the pandemic, there is the issue of staff with the digital skills to manage a new arena of engagement.

Professor Mark Williams, from WMG, University of Warwick explains:

“One of the main tasks of online conversion is the financial implications, 30% of museums have changed staff tasks to provide online services. Despite this, there are concerns that staff teams may not be fully equipped to handle such monumental changes.

“This highlights the practical challenge of enabling digital content to flourish for museums, which will be difficult for the sector in such a tight resource environment. “

Professor Paul Smith, director of the Oxford Museum of Natural History adds:

“The first lockdown linked to COVID-19 imposed a real-time stress test on museums and their ability to react in an agile manner to events. The paper highlights the creative ways in which some museums have been able to adapt to the unique and unprecedented circumstances faced. “

This research is part of a larger CiMAT team interest in WMG to engage in areas beyond engineering. Based on previous research on user experience, the research group seeks to apply concepts in the arts and humanities. The research flourished thanks to the collaboration between the WMG and the Museum of Natural History at the University of Oxford. This research, which analyzes how visitors experience museums online, is a good place to start. Researchers stress to museums that with this growing atmosphere of change on the horizon, it is important that they take these conceptual issues into account and rigorously assess the public’s needs when developing online offerings to maintain such prominence. cultural.
