This year marks the 400th anniversary of the death of Fr. Matteo Ricci. This remarkable Jesuit not only signifies the spread of the Catholic Church to China but also in his partnership with Xu Guangqi, introduced and shared European astronomy and maths further enriching Chinese society and its education system. Two modern day 'Matteo Riccis', Jacques Duraud and Jerry Martinson, both Jesuits in the service of cultural exchange introduce to us the life and achievements of Matteo Ricci and let us know what he symbolizes for them.

An exhibit on Matteo Ricci was organized at the National Central Library in Taipei:
The Jesuits’ Encounter with Chinese Scholars: A Meeting of East and West -- An Exhibition Commemorating the 400th Anniversary of Matteo Ricci
The exhibit formally started on Saturday 17 and ran until May 16, 2010,
at the new Matteo Ricci Pacific Studies Research Room

I was born in sunny Torbay on the south western coast of England's green and pleasant lands. I'm prowling the streets, parks and ruins of Taiwan hunting for absurdities and studying the sociology of the underground. Furthermore with our nomadic arts and action space "The Hole" we attempt to challenge rigid and alienating structures.
