We cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition!

Besides Peter Weibel Mayor Wolfram Jäger will speak some words of introduction. Afterwards, a Guided Tour through the exhibition will take place.

Pan Gongkai’s project traces the development of Chinese modernism from the period of the First Opium War (1839–1842) to 1999. Pan Gongkai was the President of the Central Chinese Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in Beijing until 2014. In this project, he has assembled an illustrated history of Chinese modern art in more than 1,000 photographs, plus commentary, taking art as a case study for the development of Chinese society as a whole.
