IMG_5511

We started the Migrant Street course today, 1. february by visiting the “Real Life Stories” exhibition i Bergen, where 10 contemporary artists from China are being exhibited : Jing Kewen – Xiang Jing – Li Songsong – Ai Weiwei – Xu Bing – Liu Jianhua – Song Dong – Yin Xiuzhen – Mao Tongqiang – Yue Minjun.

While discussing the different works, certain topics seemed to be of common interest or background for the different artists, such as MASS/IDENTITY – HANDCRAFT and TRADITION/STANDARDIZATION and HYPERMODERNITY related to the extreme development of modern China.
