The series Conflictual Topography, organized by Heidi Ballet, was originally conceived as a public program during the exhibition of Zhou Tao and was later adapted to the exceptional months we are living through. Heidi Ballet talked with Xiang Zairong, a researcher, theorist, and sometimes curator, about Chinese farmer’s markets, the ongoing pandemic, food, and face masks in Europe and in China.
Online Screening with Rosa Barba and Ben Rivers
The Conflictual Topography public program that was organized by Heidi Ballet and that was planned to take place during the exhibition of Zhou Tao came to a halt due to the coronavirus crisis. In a revised program, the artists of the original program will be revisited under new circumstances, to discuss how the world is being reshaped. In May, a screening of Urth (2016) by Ben Rivers and The Empirical Effect (2010) by Rosa Barba is programmed, accompanied by a conversation.
