This webdoc was conceived as the open element of the project: fluid, as ever-transforming as Beijing, the city under permanent construction it wants to tell about.
Starting from the basic grid, many pieces can be added – new links and interactions – to make up a patchwork as complex as the contemporary Chinese culture.
It is also open towards an interested audience, invited to join the debate through remarks, reflections and criticism.
Initially co-produced by Peacereporter/E il mensile, after their closedown, this webdoc is released for the first time in July 2012 as an independent work.
The authors are engaged to keep working on this project and will consider any co-production, contribution and financial offer.
