Abstract

In the northeast of central Beijing, the so-called 798 Art District has developed into the most famous cluster of Independent art in China. This cluster is a highly symbolic phenomenon, which deserves attention also from the geographic point of view. Grown on the site of a huge former state-owned factory complex of the 1950s, it reflects industrialisation and tertiarisation, mega urbanisation, globalisation, political opening-up and commercialisation in contemporary China- to name just some of the most important urban and social developments. - (IfL)
