BEIJING22

It's in Beijing

Recent Exhibition:

A Day in the Outer Ring


Nothing Ever Happens Here《这里很无聊》 and Lunar Palpitations《月食心慌 》》 are video works comprising footage from a research trip taken in March 2018 to explore the areas surrounding new and proposed HSR stations. Nothing Ever Happens Here《这里很无聊》 creates collages in physical space by bringing green screens to various sites in Hebei with current or proposed HSR stations, and inviting local residents and objects to place themselves in the speculative space of the green screen.

About

Aiming for Ideal Life – Barbara Signer, Michael Boden­mann and Jiajia Zhang

Barbara Signer, Michael Bodenmann and Jiajia Zhang spend four weeks in a space that pretends to be an apartment and arrange, re-arrange, share, seek, find, collect, deconstruct, dream, clean, talk and process along their paths of making a temporary home. Within the sharing-economy, questions of possession and community regain importance and offer alternative concepts of living.

Beijing’s Hutong in Transition: A Story of Bread and Bricks

By Jo Darrington

Inside they were packing. Boxes and instruments lay strewn everywhere. “Why?” I asked. They had to leave this place. Tomorrow it would happen. Victims were to be their big glass windows, the glass door, the second floor and the rooftop lovingly decked for BBQs and jamming sessions. He took us up there. “Take a picture of me,” he asked. “To document this moment.”

B22-Talks #1: Peripheries

Discussions on cities mostly focus on city cores and centers, while their peripheries only draw little attention. But what happens to a city's periphery when it grows and grows? Would it be absorbed or does it shift? Where does city start and where does it end?
