Upcoming Saturday July 18th MovingCities will hold a short presentation as part of the China Summer Workshop in Beijing. Taking place at the Abitare Courtyard, the meeting is organized by European Alternatives and supported by Abitare China and the China-Europa Forum. The 2-day workshop will be looking at the role of the intellectual and the artist in a European and Chinese context, with a focus on questions of nationalism, globalisation, and the meaning of public space and urban context.
The Workshop Programma has just been made available, in Chinese and English, on the China Summer Workshop-page. Amongst others participants include Rotterdam based Belgian architect and philosopher Gideon Boie (BAVO), London based Indian cultural theorist Baskar Mukhopadhyay, Paris-based American art critic and former editor of Parachute Magazine Stephen Wright, Chinese artist Huang Rui, Chinese artist and founder of The Long March space Lu Jie and Chinese architect Liang Jingyu (Approach Architecture).
