Eastern Promises Exhibition

© Li Xiaodong Atelier Liyuan Library, Liyuan, China, 2011

Currently on exhibit until October 6th at MAK Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art in , the Eastern Promises, Contemporary Architecture and Spatial Practices in East Asia focuses on the promise of a pioneering architecture, which is especially associated with East Asian countries. Projects from China, Japan, Taiwan and South Korea reflect local traditions and conditions as well as a critical awareness of global media technologies leading to an architectural approach that is less interested in iconic objects and spectacular forms than in a structural realignment of society in its spatial dimensions. A program of selected short films rounds off the exhibition with moments of experimental city viewing and everyday appropriation of (public) space. More information after the break.
