This coming Saturday, Amy Sommers will be giving a talk about the state of Shanghai’s pre-War residential housing market, the entangled and complex problems relating to ownership and property rights which has contributed to the continuing razing of Shanghai’s old neighborhoods.
At Amy’s kind invitation, I’ll be showcasing my photography work on the demolition of Shanghai’s pre-War homes as well as disappearing longtang life in accompaniment.
I’ll also bring in tow the photo boards from The Roving Exhibit I’ve written about and will be most pleased to talk about it after Amy’s presentation.
