Langfang

We all piled on to the bus in the morning for what I thought was going to be the half a mile drive back to CAFA again, but turned out to be a mystery ride out beyond the 6th. Ring Road to Langfang, a new township southwest of Beijing, to a conference centre attached to the International Cultural Exchange Center:-

We returned to the topic of new digital developments in museums, including the National Museum of Singapore, where visitors are encouraged to copy photographs from a table where they are all displayed (no copyright) so that they don’t need to take photographs themselves. Not surprisingly, the most impressive and most fully digital museum presented was the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul, where many of the displays are in new media, even when working with old media artists, including Michael Craig-Martin and William Kentridge.
