    • Now in its 10th edition, Shanghai Biennale returns this winter for a five-month tenure at Power Station of Art. This one's headed up by young Berlin-based curator, Anselm Franke and takes the theme of 'Social Factory': what characterizes the production of the social and society, and how does it relate to fictions and history? A recurring point of reference throughout the show is 1978 - the year of China's opening-up, and the starting point of contemporary art in China. With this in mind, the selection of works on display aims to examine how this production of the social has changed since then, and in what ways advanced data and profiling technologies have impacted production. The exhibition features works by more than 50 international talents and is accompanied by a yet-to-be-confirmed program of lectures and events.
