Night @ RAM welcomes Dutch artist/architectural photographer Rubén Dario Kleimeer and Dutch critic on architecture and urban design Harry den Hartog, in a presentation and discussion on 'Disappearing Rural Shanghai' moderated by Professor Gu Zheng.

Rubén Dario Kleimeerinitiates photographic projects on urban landscapes and public spaces. In 2006 he started the ongoing project 'Chongming Island.' While taking part in an exchange program at Tongji University he set out to research the announced renewal on the rural island where Dongtan ecocity was once planned. At the time construction started on a sixlane highway branching of off the outerring road leading into the tunnel and bridge which connect Chongming to the mainland. A prestigious project finished prior to the 2010 World Expo. Continued with intervals up until today, the large format photographs put into perspective and debate the developments on the island.

Harry den Hartogdid a research on the urbanization of the countryside round Shanghai. Each year, more than 15 million Chinese leave the rural areas of China and move to the cities. This figure exceeds 300,000 in the case of Shanghai. Before 2015, the majority of China’s population will be living in urban areas. His book ‘Shanghai New Towns’ documents and analyses the meteoric rate of urbanization of the countryside round Shanghai, most particularly the part played there by new towns and new villages. This book shows how the plans have been put into practice, what daily life looks like and how these new cities function within the Yangtze River Delta Metropolitan Area as a whole.

上海外滩美术馆“艺术夜生活”邀请到荷兰艺术家及建筑摄影师Rubén Dario Kleimeer和荷兰建筑及城市设计评论家Harry den Hartog参加由顾铮教授主持的“消失中的上海乡村”讲座和讨论会。

Rubén Dario Kleimeer(柯儒本) 专注于城市风貌和公共空间的摄影项目。2006年,借助同济大学国际交流项目的契机,他参与了“崇明岛东滩生态城” 郊区再改造项目。当时,上海正在建造一条六车道高速公路通向长江隧桥,把外环和崇明连接在一起。这项重点工程2010年世博会前完工。儒本的摄影项目从06年断断续续进行到现在,他拍摄的大尺寸照片给大家带来众多有关崇明岛开发的思考和探讨。

Harry den Hartog(哈利.邓.哈托格)研究了上海周边农村的城市化发展。每年1500多万中国农民工移居城市。而每年移居上海的移民工高达三十多万人。到2015年,中国的城市化率将超过50%。哈利的著作《上海新镇》记录并分析了上海周边这一飞速的城市发展现象,着重研究各个新城和新镇在其中扮演的角色。这本书向读者展示了规划如何变成现实,长三角都市圈中的新城市居民的日常生活以及这些新城镇所发挥的功能。
