In 2006, Beijing New Art Projects was the venue for the first Asian staging in the ‘Field-of-Vision’ global art project. ‘Field of Vision: Beijing’ presented a freeze-frame slice through the multiple perspectives of the many real and imagined contemporary Chinas. An immense wall-based installation was constructed from a skillfully edited assemblage of uncensored ‘visual blogs’ collected worldwide over the Internet following a highly successful call for submissions.

‘Field of Vision: Beijing’ was the result of a year long collaboration between Chinese photography and performance artists the Gao Brothers and German artist Stephan Hausmeister, then based in the UK. The Beijing field, like all other geographical instants in the global series, reflected a unique local situation at a fixed point in time, including its relationships to global issues and perceptions, both positive and dissonant.
