BLURB

Where there are walls, there are worlds that are never supposed to meet. Or, if we look at it in another way, where there are different worlds, there will always be walls of some sort, real or imagined. Shanghai’s Moganshan Road is a place where several worlds and eras meet and divide. As if a time warp created a meeting hall of cultures past, present and future, that are not separated, but connected by a humble structure along the street. Not even most graffiti painters know what a strange cultural context they’re adding artwork to. The layers of the old Fou Foong flour mill, the Shangtex textile factory, construction sites of immense and imminent skyscraper blocks, and the most current contemporary art mix here, while the wall itself has become something like a movie screen. Its characters are modern and curious, and are set in contrast to the rustic background that has thus far withstood the test of modern time. Their audience is a century old, yet alive. They walk around us. Maybe you just haven’t noticed them. [Andras Gal]
