Inside Beijing is a multimedia project covering the political and cultural capital of China. A diary describing Beijing through words, images, sounds and noises. It focuses mainly on two aspects connected to each other: the urban development of the metropolis and the evolution of the Chinese culture. What ideas lie at the heart of the city’s various places? Why, for example, Beijing boasts a gigantic square but has no public spaces? What kind of connection exists between the official and the popular culture emanating from the underbelly of the city?
Inside Beijing is also meant to be a tribute to Beijing, a city which can be either fascinating or unbearable, but it never leaves you indifferent.
