China in 1937

With Eugene Wang
30 Nov 2016 | Johann Jacobs Museum

Our conversation is an attempt to define the essential moments and characteristics of a Chinese modernity in the short epoch between the collapse of the last dynasty and the Japanese invasion. On the occasion of the exhibition Moonlight falls into my Study we ask ourselves what this period can teach us about contemporary and future China and its relationship to the world?

Professor Eugene Wang is Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Professor of Asian Art at Harvard University, USA.
