About

Wang Bing is one of the most important contemporary documentary filmmakers. He is known for his epic films, which are dedicated to the world of work, everyday life, constraints and opportunities of the people. His films are produced in China and are mainly performed in the West at festivals (Venice Film Festival, Locarno Film Festivaletc.), but also at  documenta 14 , Kassel, in galleries ( Chantal Crousel , Paris) and museums ( Center Georges Pompidou , Paris) ,

At the Kunsthalle Zürich, Bing will be showing the two films Mrs. Fang (Fang Xiu Ying,  102 min., 2017, Golden Leopard 2017) and Man with No Name (Wu ming zhe,  99 min., 2010). Both films focus on an individual with his fragile physicality. Bing follows Mrs. Fang and the unnamed man with stubborn respect and closeness. His films are characterized by balancing acts of intimacy, which are committed to a hard realism. In this case, two portraits have emerged that teach us as well as challenge us. Both films are shown twice a day and each time in Kunsthalle Zürich
