Neue Veranstaltungsreihe zur Lage der Kunst in China
Unter dem Titel „Das Bild hinter dem Bild — zur Lage der Kunst in China”

New Series: “Hidden Images” — on the Situation of Art in China

Opening event on 16 January 2013 with the Director of the Shanghai Biennale Qiu Zhijie, the Director of Arthub Asia, Davide Quadrio and the China expert Tilman Spengler

Under the title “Hidden Images — on the situation of Art in China” the University of the Arts Berlin has invited artists, creatives and intellectuals from the People’s Republic of China to Berlin to participate in a series of events staged in cooperation with Haus der Kulturen der Welt. The year-long series of talks on contemporary art in China is designed to show the many different aspects of the turbulent art scene in this huge country and to place them in a social context.

Together with international experts, protagonists of Chinese contemporary art will participate in a series of discussions, a series of lectures and artists’ workshops, thus giving insight into the rapid developments in China’s most recent art history and enabling in depth engagement with Chinese art. The discussions plan to use a political and poetic approach addressing questions about the social role of the artists as well as the artistic visions that currently move China. What forces drive art in China? What new horizons and modes of thought will our engagement with Chinese Art open to us? By alternately looking at Chinese art from a European and Chinese perspective we gain views from both inside and outside, gradually revealing an unaccustomed picture that can assume many forms — the pictures behind the picture, the hidden images.

UdK Berlin has been committed to developing contacts with China for many years and in 2006 launched a joint Master’s programme in Visual Arts and Design with the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. While knowledge transfer initially operated only in one direction — from Germany to China — the road is now open for a two-way exchange, the appointment of Ai Weiwei as Einstein-Guest Professor at UdK Berlin being an exemplary step in that direction. The series “Hidden Images — on the situation of Art in China”, instigated by Prof. Martin Rennert, President of the Berlin University of the Arts, will add a new dimension to this exchange, bringing many different voices from China’s art scene to Berlin and thus allowing an open encounter and the emergence of new ideas.

The series is curated by the artists and China experts Andreas Schmid and Bignia Wehrli. The opening event will take the form of a discussion between the Chinese artist and Director of this year’s Shanghai Biennale Qiu Zhijie, the Director of Arthub Asia, Shanghai, Davide Quadrio and the author Tilman Spengler from Munich. The discussion will be led by Andreas Schmid und Bignia Wehrli.

I live in California central valley. I want to buy Chinese calligraphy supplies, specifically an ink stone. I tried buying one online, but was disappointing when it came broken in three pieces. Because of that, now I want to buy one in store to avoid ordering another one just to return it. Is it possible to get one of these from somewhere like Jo Ann’s or a similar store?

Try Hobby Lobby, they might have it.

 

I would love to know what you people think. I mean, having to see a Chinese martial arts practitioner gaining money and fame as a gladiator rather than pursuing Dao and defending his or her home. Doesn’t that sound sad?

No cause everything evolves. If everyone stayed the same then we would not progress..

 

I am going to be staying in the San Francisco Hilton in the Financial District (750 Kearny Street San Francisco, CA 94108).

What is the best way to get to Fisherman’s wharf (other than walking)?
Also are cabs available at Fisherman’s Wharf which you can take to drive back to the hotel?

Also what are some good cheap places to eat around the hotel?

Any good shops in Chinatown that sell jade jewelry?

You will have no problem getting a cab from your hotel, there are cabs waiting outside all major hotels or the door man can get one for you. Getting a cab at fisherman’s wharf may be a bit more challenging.

You can also catch a 9x bus just a 1/2 block from the hotel that will take you to the Wharf and take the same bus back. Ask the hotel concierge or check out the Muni website for more info:

By cheap restaurants I assume you mean under $20 per meal?
My suggestions:
Café Macaroni – Columbus at Jackson – Wonderful Italian food, opt for smaller space on east side of Columbus
Henry’s Hunan at 674 Sacramento, on Battery at Broadway or between 2nd and New Montgomery and Harrison and Folsom south of Market near the MOMA. – Great Chinese don’t miss Diana’s Meat Pie
Moderately priced dim sum at City View restaurant on Commerical at Kearny.
Cheap dim sum is Louie’s on Stockton at Broadway. Best hargow and pork buns in the city! Take out only
Marios Bohemian Cigar Store at Union and Columbus, a good place for lunch, try the meatball sandwich or chicken pannini…mmmmm!
SF Brewing Company on Columbus at Pacific a brew pub with good typical bar food.
On Kearney between Pine and Bush there is a whole array of decent cheap restaurants. Lee’s Deli Does Great Sandwiches, Burritos and Chinese food or choose from Thai, Japanese, Hawian BBQ, Mexican, Cuban, Indian or Greek restaurants on that single block.
Lots of jade for sale in C-town. Skip the places on Grant Avenue and check for places along the cross streets or in the alleys between Grant and Stockton.

 

95 different plates – from some of the most famous makers.

how do i keep my outside birds safe at night ?

On February 17, 2013, in Chinese Art, by admin

there chinese painted quail
do they perch

i have an upturned bucket with a hole in it will they nest and sleep in it

i will provide nesting material

its in a non portable outdoor cage
will this be warm enough

well if they are in a cage you mean?
if they are, just put a tarpoolan over the top of the cage.
but if they are outside in a little cage that is portable, you could just bring them inside and then you put a blanket over the cage to stop them waking up due to distraction and then waking you up :)
that’s what i used to do but now we have a sort of aviary thing and they are safe. you don’t really have to worry about them being safe if they are in an avary.

 

where to buy beautiful gold navel rings?

On February 17, 2013, in Jade Store, by admin

Does anyone know of anyplace in brampton or toronto that sells real belly rings. Im looking for a gold dangle one with some kind of blue stone, turqouis? Jade? Or just one that looks pretty and reminds you of the carribean, colour wise that is.

you could check out a few websites, you could try bodyartforms.com or maybe go to a peoples or local jewelery store, or see if your piercer has any you could buy or she could order.

 

i got a whole bunch of jade rock from my father after he passed. Now, I know there’s something to do with blacklight. That it won’t glow under blacklight. But, i don’t have a black light handy and I’m curious if its expensive or not?

Thanks.

all Jade is expensive, don’t be cheap with it, consult a jeweler or a rock hound.You can buy a black light in the hardware store for a few dollars.
