Times Art Center Berlin celebrates its first anniversary with friends and books. Exactly one year ago, we opened to the public with our inaugural exhibition The D-Tale: Video Art from the Pearl River Delta, curated by Hou Hanru and Xi Bei, at Potsdamer Strasse. This summer, we moved to our permanent location at Brunnenstrasse 9 in Berlin-Mitte and opened the group show Neither Black / Red / Yellow Nor Woman curated by Nikita Yingqian Cai and Xiaoyu Weng.
On the occasion of our first anniversary, we would like to take the opportunity to present our first exhibition catalogue The D-Tale: Video Art from the Pearl River Delta published by Sternberg Press this year. Through four essays by critics and curators, as well as texts and images of the works on exhibit–more than eighty works by nearly sixty artists, the book aims to present a vital component of the Chinese art world which is under-represented on the global art scene, namely the contemporary art production from the Pearl River Delta.
