We cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition On Curbstone Jewels and Cobblestones at Daimler Contemporary Berlin, on November 12th, 2015 at 7 p.m.
On Curbstone Jewels and Cobblestones is the second part of an exhibition series on Chinese and international contemporary art in the context of the Daimler Art Collection. Whereas the first part of our exhibition series specifically focused on conceptual trends in video art and installation art, the exhibition entitled On Curbstone Jewels and Cobblestones focuses on the juxtaposition of sculptural works with photography. This exhibition with artworks by fifteen artists from seven nations outlines aspects of human living together in densely populated urban areas, in the rapidly growing great cities of China in particular. As fictions, but also as concrete experiments in influencing the society of which they are a product, these artworks discuss the social and political consequences of urbanization. Once more, these works also remind us, just how much views of China have shifted over the past two decades.
