Due to three years of COVID-19 restrictions and the strengthening of Xi
Jinping’s authoritarian rule, our grip on the latest developments in Chinese culture here in
Europe has loosened. The deepening of the ideological divide between the „collective West”
and the PRC has made it even more challenging to understand the changes in Chinese
society over the last few years. The further we drift apart, the less we know about each
other. However, cultural productions can function as a tool helping to bridge this widening
gap in mutual knowledge.
In this podcast, we present the initial results of ongoing research on Chinese cultural
productions, which is a part of the China Horizons project. We look at the latest films, literary
works, theatre productions and works of visual artists from China and discuss what they can
tell us about Chinese society. What are the key topics tackled by artists working in the PRC?
What are the recurring themes and themes specific to certain genres? What are the
conditions of work in the cultural field in Xi Jinping’s China? These questions, and many
more, will be covered in conversation between the four researchers working on this project.
The project “China Horizons – Dealing With a Resurgent China” (DWARC) has received
funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme
under grant agreement number 101061700.The Culture Zone of SWPS University is a project in which, together with the invited guests, we discuss various elements of the culture that surrounds us, as well as introduce the realities, phenomena and customs present in other countries.
