Set in Motion is a series of one-night screenings featuring contemporary video art and experimental short films hosted by Purdue University’s Fountain Gallery in Lafayette, IN.

With video capabilities becoming part of our everyday, we encourage artists to challenge the medium and question our reality.

Aloysius Jin Luxian S.J. (1916-2013), the late “aboveground” bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Shanghai, has remained a towering and yet controversial religious figure to this day in global Catholic world. Educated by the French Jesuits in Shanghai, he joined the Society of Jesus in 1938 and was ordained a priest in 1946. He returned to China in 1951 after studying theology in France and Italy, at the time when many were fleeing. While some credit him for restoring China’s Catholic Church from ashes since 1982, others accuse him of illegitimacy and even treason. Current research on Bishop Jin tends to focus on the complex relationship between the Vatican and the Chinese government. This presentation proposes to study his decision to collaborate with the government and his subsequent achievements in light of the mind of Chinese Catholic intellectuals from Ma Xiangbo to Wang Changzhi: their continuous adherence to the legacy of the first Jesuits mission as exemplified by Matteo Ricci (1552-1610), their resistance to Western missionaries’ imperialism in the 19th and early 20th centuries, as well as their alliance with progressive Catholic thinkers who played a pivotal role leading up to the Vatican II (1962-1965) reforms.
