Zài Xīng Tǔ Mù_

Es ist uns eine große Freude, die Ausstellung ‚Zài Xīng Tǔ Mù. Sechzehn chinesische Museen, Fünfzehn chinesische Architekten’ anzukündigen, die am 26. August bei Aedes in Berlin eröffnet wird. Bereits vor 15 Jahren präsentierten wir mit “TU-MU” – zunächst bei Aedes in Berlin und später in Shanghai – die erste Generation unabhängig arbeitender Architekten aus China, die hierdurch erstmalig internationale Aufmerksamkeit und Anerkennung erhielten. Nun führt der ANCB diesen kulturellen Dialog zu Architektur und Städtebau mit einem besonderen Fokus auf Museen fort.

China is an outstanding example of a new ‘museum boom’. The sheer number of new projects is overwhelming, and citizens, the international public as well as visitors wonder about the long-term effects on society and public urban space. 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. The selected projects were chosen not alone for their formal novelty; they are also representative of certain aspects in the current museum development. To illustrate the subject, ANCB commissioned the professional painter Yiming Liao from Dafen in Shenzhen to interpret the museum buildings in their urban or rural environment as oil paintings. Zài Xīng Tǔ Mù is part of the longterm ANCB programme ‘The Museum of the 21st Century. Content – Form – Impact’.
An Aedes catalogue will be published for the exhibition.
