  • About the Talk

    With the emergence of Weibo, Wechat, micro-film, micro-advertising, micro-plastic surgery and micro-finance, we seem to have entered an era of micro-media and micro-culture. These “micro media” characterized by their micro scale are more than just a phenomenon in the world of media; they have affected nearly all of our industries, art circles and everyday life. Nowadays no one would turn a blind eye to this phenomenon, but still it is not easy to interpret. It will be inappropriate if we denounce it as guardians of traditional culture do to fast-food culture and junk food. Only by connecting it with China’s history and contemporary culture and putting it in the context of globalization, can we get an in-deep understanding. The talk attempts to interpret how this phenomenon has intervened our lives by relating micro-media and micro-culture with contemporary art.
