Cultural Revolution Photos in Shanghai

An interesting exhibition in Shanghai at the moment - Beijing Sixty Six, featuring some amazing photographs of the Cultural Revolution by Solange Brand. What makes them startling is that they are mostly colour and for some reason (perhaps just in my mind’s eye) photos of the CR always seem black and white to me.

Solange Brand, then the Art Director for Le Monde Diplomatique visited China between 1966 to 1968, Some of the most interesting photos are around the journeys people made to the large rallies held in Beijing by the Red Guards. These were incredibly mass movements of people. In fact I can’t think of too many other great ideologically or religious motivated movements on the same scale with the exception of the Haj and the kumbh mela.

Anyway Beijing Sixty Six runs until May 22 at the Beaugeste Photo Gallery, Building 5 Space 519, Taikang Road Lane 210 – the supposed art space or something down where about 3,000 instant coffee and tat shops have opened.
