POINTS ON THE MAP: ESTABILISHES A SYMBOLIC TENSION WITHIN A CULTURAL SPACE

2013-11-11

The “Points On the Map” has selected artworks by western documentary photographers and filmmakers dealing with regional conflicts, especially in the regions of Afghanistan, Israel/Palestine and the Caucasus. These works propel the viewers to contemplate on issues concerning politics, war, culture and the economy. Meanwhile, as China gradually “looks out and steps into the world”, its new modes of politics political, diplomacy and economy may become the focus of Chinese photographers, which may also indicates that new geopolitical structure is being established in the world.

It includes unique exhibition space and cultural context, still and moving images, and the text and sound setup, as well as multi-spatial platforms established in such independent space, for example, the internet, iPad or installations which allow synchronized multimedia platforms.

The unit of “Points On the Map” calls on the most active components in western photography in recent years, and integrates the newly emerged phenomena and trends into an independent thematic exhibition in order to present and referential and open-minded and global perspective, while establishes a symbolic tension within a cultural space.
