A civil war has been raging for decades in Myanmar’s Kokang region, which is home to the Ta’ang people. When their lives are once again in danger in spring 2015, it is mostly the women and children who flee over the border to China. Wang Bing accompanies a few of these communities thrown together by fate, at once modern and bound to traditions. They wander the remote mountains with few possessions, and camp in makeshift compounds, telling each other stories by the campfire at night. Wang Bing presents us with a picture of a refugee crisis that has received very little attention in the rest of the world.

The Conventions of Identity

The Conventions of Identity

The exhibition “Look At Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection” examined portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shaped a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.

In the works of western painters, we encounter mosques as the primary architectural elements that reflect the identity of the city of Istanbul. Often we can recognize the depicted landscape as Istanbul simply from the mosques.
