Since 1950, Taiwan has begun modern transformation/ revolution in the world of painting during the post-war period. This not only struck its art development but also led to the birth of modernism and modern art in Taiwan. Even though Taiwan had the impact of modern Japanese and traditional Chinese cultures, it was not enough to meet the needs of modernization of art there. In mid-1970s, Taiwanese artist Chu Ko (1932-2011) proposed to abolish the “National painting” which reflected the extreme opposite views between the old and the new cultures. Revolutionists emphasized that art should not be classified into East and West, or major and minor. It aims at creating a bigger world vision and to avoid centralism. This lecture uses an “East Asian Community” perspective to analyze Taiwanese artist Chu Ko’s ink paintings and how it related to the 20th century’s modern culture.

自一九五○年代開始,戰後台灣畫壇展開一波歷時數十年之久的現代化改革風潮,不僅衝擊現代美術發展,更造就劃時代的現代藝術。「正統國畫論爭」和「國畫現代化」是戰後傳統繪畫面臨外部挑戰以及如何在地化等問題所帶來的結果。縱然戰後的台灣在「文化上」受到日本現代文化和中國傳統文化影響,但仍未能滿足其在美術現代化的實際需求。一九七○年代中期,楚戈(一九三二至二零一一)更大膽倡言廢除「國畫」,反映新舊世代之間文化立場的極端對立。革新派主張藝術不應有東西或主從之分,意在建立一種世界一體的宏觀視野,以迴避中心主義;同時,批評主政者及守舊派對於「國畫」的迷信,強調必須破除「中華文化沙文主義」以及東亞文化宗主國的自大心態,重新透過「東亞文化共同體」的觀念,去創造超越國族主義思想的二十世紀現代文化。
