On December 16, 1923, the Office of the Governor-General of Taiwan launched an island-wide arrest against those involved in the "League forthe Establishment of a Taiwanese Parliament". It shocked the society onthe island of Taiwan and was called "The Public Order and Police Act Incident".After the arrests of Chiang Wei-shui, Tsai Pei-huo and others, news of the arrests came to light, making the trial a major concern for the islanders.

This ideological and legal tug-of-war reveals the antagonism between thecolonial government and political and social movements. The focus of the debate in court was on the controversy over the association forming of the "League for the Establishment of a Taiwanese Parliament".

These jailed "noble-minded patriot" became the "heroes" of the Taiwanese. In their poems, one can see their experiences, their emotions,and the public's perceptions and actions. After the incident, the "Petition Movement for the Establishment of a Taiwanese Parliament" also entered a new stage. What are the thoughts and actions of the petitioners and the co-operating parliament members?
The exhibition uses the form of media coverage and AI imaging algorithms to simulate some of the historical figures and scenes, creating a historical atmosphere close to the time and allowing you to immerse yourself in it. We sincerely invite you to join us at New Culture Newspaper to examine the scene of the incident and to explore the introspection and outlook brought by history from the perspective of a budding journalist.
