This web site provides information on artist-run spaces in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, The Phillipines and Vietnam. There are some good networking connections on the links page.

"USEby is a cultural exchange project that links and explores artist-run spaces and initiatives throughout the Asia Pacific region. It offers artists, curators and writers the opportunity to exchange ideas and resources and to develop relationships and collaborations. USEby is specifically designed for use by artists and artist-driven organisations. While its aims are ongoing and far-reaching, USEby retains a sense of moderation, acknowledging the resourcefulness and energy of the small-scale, low-fi, DIY aesthetic that often characterises the artist-run endeavour.

It's not online, but I think it's at St. Marks Bookshop. The interview tests some interesting premises about the status of art as an inherently political -- in the "friend/enemy" definition of the term -- entity. Mouffe also has some pretty far-out ideas that branch away from the contemporary Left: contesting the legitimacy of a common "human citizen," a citizenship of the world; universal human rights, etc."
