More Details

Celebrating its sixth edition in Hong Kong, Art Basel presents an exciting program of 27 film and video works. Multimedia artist and film producer Li Zhenhua, who has curated the sector since its inception, has chosen exceptional works that invite audiences to ponder the dilemmas facing the world today, with a particular focus on the issues that preoccupy intellectuals and cultural workers at this moment in time.

Li was inspired by Chinese writer Yu Dafu’s Spring Fever (published in 1923); he saw similarities between his personal challenges and those of the characters who lived in the Republic of China. This selection of film and video works expresses the possibility for people to examine the current cultural context before exploring ideas of change and reform.
