Featuring historical works and pictures by contemporary artists, the exhibition Working on History. Contemporary Chinese Photography and the Cultural Revolution lifts the veil on one of the most fascinating and yet simultaneously little-explored chapters in the history of photography: the impact of the Cultural Revolution on current art and photography in China.

The exhibition is presented in two parts: approximately a third of the show is dedicated to the historical visual world of the Cultural Revolution. This forms a counterpoint to the in many cases large-format (often serially arranged) contemporary exhibits, a generous selection of which are displayed alongside video installations and photo sculptures.
