Taipei Times - UNESCO conference blends art and politics :
"Taiwan recently held an international art conference that was political at heart."
For years Taiwan has attempted to gain membership to the UN, to no avail. It does manage to get its foot in the back door via cultural organizations of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) such as the International Association of Art Critics (AICA, a French acronym). AICA held its annual international meeting, the AICA 2004 World Congress, in Taiwan recently.
