Since the turn of the twenty-first century, China has become a global leader. The country is rapidly increasing its influence on the world and enjoys frequent coverage by all major media outlets. China is a relatively new country to the western world: what’s its culture like and how is it possible that it has been able to become a global leader in so many different fields of science and industries?
In our atelier, we performed research on various aspects of contemporary China, ranging from food to LGBT rights, as well as science and the car industry. To investigate these we went to Shanghai in August last year. During our trip, we interviewed locals, professors and leading individuals in their respective industry.
Today, you will learn more about China as it is now and about how it will develop in the future. We transformed our experience into several mini-documentaries. Take a look at them, participate in our quiz and have a chance to win a Chinese-themed prize!
