About The Exhibition
This thought-provoking exhibition explores the topic of architecture and the temporal precariousness of the built environment. Among the issues to be addressed are the recording of history and preservation; the concept of home and displacement; and the influence of global power, economics, and political systems on global construction.
About The Film
This film explores the Chinese building bubble and the real estate industry—including the vast ghost towns that become dazzling metropolises on sales day as hired foreigners perform "international" acts—through its advertising, perception/deception, the concept of home, and the definition of ‘The Chinese Dream.”
