China Unlimited – three days at Uni Zurich
As part of the further education programme EMAA (Eexecutive Master of Arts Administration), Michael Schindhelm once again taught at the University of Zurich. This time, the aim was to discuss how the massive social transformation of the People’s Republic of China is reflected in art and culture. Parallel to the Party Congress of the Communist Party of China, the focus was also on taking stock of China’s relationship with the West: against the backdrop of the pandemic and the Ukraine war.
Also present were Jörg Wuttke, General Representative of BASF China, the curator Li Zhenhua and the patron and collector Uli Sigg, whom the study group also visited at his residence in Mauensee Castle to get to know his unique collection of Chinese contemporary art at first hand (picture).
