Ready to Join?

Cao Fei was born in Guangzhou, China, in Protected content , the daughter of an artist and an artist. She graduated from the local state art academy in Protected content . As a child of the Pearl River Delta, she grew up in an area of China that was at the centre of rapid economic growth and urban development. Pop culture, computer games, consumer electronics and the latest technologies were her childhood companions. She has lived and worked in Beijing since Protected content . In her films, photographs and walk-in multimedia installations, Cao Fei deals with the economic and social upheavals in her and our shared living environment. Digitalisation, globalisation, the transformation of urban and suburban structures and thus our living spaces are at the heart of her artistic work. Her focus is on the circumstances in which we humans live, react to developments around us, adapt to them or actively incorporate them into our lives. Cao Fei's works bear witness to how we humans cope with the beauty and at the same time the dangers of a technologised, globalised and hyper-connected world, and the physical and psychological effects this has on us; how experiences and self-image are touched and changed at the core.

Dear members,

after the visit we could talk and debate about this very actual form of art at Kosmos Cafe.
Please excuse the break I had to do in march...I´m glad to see you again.

Best wishes!
