China 1979 – A giant awakens @ Sijthoff Cultuur

China 1979 - A giant awakens @ Sijthoff Cultuur

This exhibition shows never before published photographs, taken by Dutch photographer Paul van Riel in 1979 at the first opportunity for tourists to visit the country. The exhibition will open on 6 July with an interview with the photographer and runs until 28 July. Information: www.sijthoff-leiden.nl/agenda

China 1979 – A giant awakens

China’s tourism industry was very limited until the late 1970s. The general designer of China’s reform and open door policy, Mr Deng Xiaoping, Vice Chairman of the Communist Party of China, delivered a total of five speeches from October 1978 to July 1979, initiating drastic economic reforms and heralding the development of China’s tourism.

Briefly based in Hong Kong at that time, Dutch photographer Paul van Riel leapt at the opportunity to explore the fascinating ‘sleeping giant’. His first ten-day trip in January 1979, took him via Guangzhou to Guilin and Nanning (in the southern Guangdong and Guangxi Provinces). In December of the same year, he visited Shanghai, Nanjing and Hangzhou, in the coastal area roughly 1.000 km north of Hong Kong.

This exhibition shows a generous selection of black and white photos taken during these first two 1979 China trips (many followed in later years). Most of these images have never been published. China was far away and only months earlier a handful of airlines, travel agents and private organizations were granted authority to organize tours, while most photo essays for the European traveller concentrated on easier to reach destinations. How fast things would change!

Signed, limited edition prints (museum quality) in various sizes of all the exhibited photos are available.  Inquiries: info@paulvanriel.com

Organisation

This exhibition is a collaboration between IIAS, the photographer and ‘Sijthoff Cultuur’, and is organised as part of the Cultural Program of the 11th International Convention of Asia Scholars.

De wereld volgens China @ Tivoli Vredenburg

WAT WILLEN DE CHINESE MACHTHEBBERS MET ONS?

Het Westen vreest China. De VS voert een keiharde handelsoorlog met het land en Chinese technologie wordt verboden. De angst is groot: Gaat China ons economisch domineren? Ons massaal bespioneren? Onze vrijheden beperken?

Hoe terecht is die angst? In De wereld volgens China legt Ties Dams uit wat de Aziatische grootmacht nu echt wil. Nederland, de EU en andere landen formuleren allemaal hun eigen China-strategie. Maar begrijpen wij China eigenlijk wel? Dams leert je in dit college met Chinese ogen naar de wereld kijken.

Met president Xi heeft het land haar meest autoritaire leider sinds Mao. En Xi heeft grote ambities. Maar kan hij die ook waarmaken? In dit college ontleed Dams aan de hand van heldere voorbeelden de kracht en zwaktes die China’s kijk op de wereld bepalen.

Data en locaties

  • 8 oktober in Tivoli Vredenburg, Utrecht
  • 21 oktober in Nieuwspoort, Den Haag

Spreker en moderator

Ties Dams is China-deskundige. Hij schreef De Nieuwe Keizer over Xi Jinping en is verbonden aan het Instituut Clingendael en de Universiteit van Amsterdam.

De wereld volgens China wordt gepresenteerd door Thomas van Zijl, presentator bij Haagsch College en BNR Nieuwsradio.
