Kassel: Memory and Reconstruction
Kassel ia a German city which has an inextricably connection to China yet not signifcant enough to the Chinese. Founded in 1955, the Documenta Kassel has become one of the most important contemporary art exhibitions in the world and meanwhile witnessed the post-war revival of German culture and economy. The Institute of Fine Arts Kassel may not be the most famous in Germany, but it is the most friendly one to Chinese artists within a certain period. Since the 1980s many Chinese artists have studied here and had an impact of various levels on the development of Chinese contemporary art, including some significant positions like ZHOU Chunya, MIAO Xiaochun, QIU Anxiong etc.
However, what kind of city is Kassel exactly? Is it a new starting point in life, or some place accompanied by pains and sadness after leaving with constantly memories? Should it become a concept upon dreams, memories and perception of personal fragmentation, which beyond a concrete place. After studing and living for nearly ten years in Kassel, I want to invite some artists, who have attended the Documenta, and some of my former professors and classmates in Kassel, and hope to review the city with photographs and videos in a most individual perspective. The completely different lifestyles and experiences of these artists will build a real and imaging world. That could be a Kassel which we have never seen or thought of.
