Synopsis

Introduction

A forgotten history of World War II written

for the Sixth Fuel Factory, and those who are forgotten but do exist

  The serial publications of Living Metaphor﹒Living Museum are the result National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University's implementation of the following projects: "Regeneration of Historic Sites" initiated by the Ministry of Culture and the Good Neighborliness Residency Project of the Sixth Fuel as well as Hsinchu Living Museum under the Higher Education SPROUT Project of the Ministry of Education. Starting from 2018, the NYCU team has made efforts to unfold the issue related to the preservation and revitalization of "Japanese Navy's Sixth Fuel Factory Hsinchu Branch"(the Sixth Fuel Factory thereafter).

  TransArt NYCU cooperated with Post Theater of Germany to produce two theatrical works-- For-giving, For-getting and Nonuments, in which fifty artists from Taiwan and abroad worked together to display interdisciplinary creations related to the Sixth Fuel Factory in WWII. This became one of the key points in Hsinchu Living Museum. This book with the record of the whole performance, research theses, and the two scripts not only collects the content of the entire project but also can be the contemplation of the artistic display.
