Liu Tao, A Weak Road No. 110, 2012

Dr. Niklas Maak in conversation with Dr. Jörg Garbrecht

Alone and naked, the young street art photographer Liu Tao stands opposite gigantic residential towers in the metropolises of Beijing and Shanghai. His powerfully silent protest against urban gigantomania is red-hot and rich in historical references: Melancholic retrospective romanticism resonates in Liu’s black-and-white photographs, as do gloomy future scenarios. Urban historians recognize parallels to Baudelaire’s legendary critique of Parisian boulevardization, while performance connoisseurs are reminded of the Beijing East Village of the 1990s. Architecture critic and journalist Dr. Niklas Maak will discuss the consequences of ongoing urbanization – and its opportunities. What will happen to people, their culture and traditions in the city of the future? How do we want to live?
