Urban-Rural: Reconnecting by Design
Is the growth of cities over? In November 2019, the Zhangyan Harvests Festival, near Shanghai, explored diverse aspects of China’s emerging rural economy. As a festival centrepiece, the exhibition “Urban-Rural” brought together projects to do with Soils, Making, Feeding, Clothing, Dwelling, and Learning. In this short film, which was shot prior to the opening, Urban-Rural’s guest curator, John Thackara, takes you around the exhibition.
