A silent, dust-covered Beijing greeted us – four exchange students from Denmark – as the train softly came to a stop at Beijing’s Central Railway Station one mild Indian summer day in September 1981 after an eight-day train journey with the Trans-Siberian railway from Copenhagen Central Station.
KØS, Museum of art in public spaces, 15 March, 2014
Thank you for
inviting me here today. Christine Buhl Andersen & Tereza de Aruda have
already spoken about the exhibition and the artist, Wang Qingsong. I have been
specifically asked not to talk about art in China, but the space in which
artists express themselves.
