“Sixteen Chinese Museums, Fifteen Chinese Architects” promote a cultural dialogue on architecture and urbanism with China with a specific focus on contemporary museums.
The exhibition “Zài Xīng Tǔ Mù. Sixteen Chinese Museums, Fifteen Chinese Architects” promote a cultural dialogue on architecture and urbanism with China with a specific focus on contemporary museums.
The exhibition reflects on the physical and curatorial positioning of museums as drivers of progress within the socio-political and cultural landscape in China today. Tasks and aims associated with museums and cultural spaces are examined against the backdrop of today’s global, digital, urban and demographic challenges, while local factors of heritage and identity and corresponding public and private strategies are also taken into consideration.
Taking the sixteen museums as case studies, the exhibition focuses on the following questions: How is local and national identity defined by the museum design and curatorial strategies? How does the museum function within the context of its local, social and urban environment? How does the programme influence the spatial form and vice versa?
