About Beijing22

Image: Ute Adamczweski

Beijing22 is an open, independent, long-term curatorial project, which will investigate the dynamics of Beijing’s urban space in the five years preceding the Olympic Games in 2022. Over this timespan, Beijing22 manifests itself in exhibitions, publications, talks, conferences and other activities, thereby archiving the various perspectives of artists, curators, academics and journalists from China and abroad.

The core element of Beijing22 is an online forum for artistic and scientific positions and a publicly accessible archive accompanying urban changes in a parallel and discursive manner. The city, cultural policies, the image of Beijing and individual perspectives and testimonies are captured and curated in response to one of the greatest urban developments in recent history. The material helps us to comprehend and reflect on the changing city and contextualize it with references from a variety of disciplines such as art, architecture, city planning, sociology, philosophy, journalism, psychology etc.
