Limits of Visibility: Taiwan's Tongzhi Movement in Mickey Chen's Documentaries

Limits of Visibility: Taiwan's Tongzhi Movement in Mickey Chen's Documentaries This article examines Mickey Chen's queer documentaries and their tactics of subversion, especially in his representation of both positive and negative images and in his formal strategies of mimicking mainstream media. Issues of “visibility” permeate the general landscape of documentary representation of Taiwan's GLBT or the so-called tongzhi (同志, literally “comrade”) community. Thus questions of resistance and subversion must be viewed through the lens of visibility. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png positions asia critique Duke University Press

Abstract

This article examines Mickey Chen's queer documentaries and their tactics of subversion, especially in his representation of both positive and negative images and in his formal strategies of mimicking mainstream media. Issues of “visibility” permeate the general landscape of documentary representation of Taiwan's GLBT or the so-called tongzhi (同志, literally “comrade”) community. Thus questions of resistance and subversion must be viewed through the lens of visibility.
