Zhang Kechun to feature in Museum für Fotografie’s exhibition ‘Working on History: Contemporary Chinese Photography and the Cultural Revolution’

The Museum für Fotografie in Berlin is unveiling an exhibition exploring the consequences of the Cultural Revolution for today’s Chinese art and photography scene. Working on History: Contemporary Chinese Photography and the Cultural Revolution offers a historical perspective, through which it is hoped that visitors will gain a better understanding of contemporary Chinese photographic art. Photographs taken during the Cultural Revolution of 1966-1976 are now used as a basis for works by contemporary artists such as Wang Qingsong and Cao Kai, whilst photographers such as Zhang Kechun document the surviving legacies of the Cultural Revolution through their work.

The exhibition is presented in two parts, juxtaposing the historical visual world of the Cultural Revolution with large format contemporary exhibits, and will run from 18 August 2017 to 7 January 2018.
