家作坊 HomeShop; Beijing, 2008-2013

HomeShop was a self-initiated project space located in a storefront space in the old city centre hutong alleyways of Beijing. Using the space and its window front as a permeable frame to examine ways of relaying between public and private, HomeShop engaged in various, interwoven series of small-scale activities, including interventions, workshops, discussion groups, hosted services for the public and an on-going research of the ‘village-in-city’ dynamics of contemporary Beijing. These forms of creative articulation and documentary gestures were invested as processes by which HomeShop served as an open platform to question existing models of economic and artistic production. Here, daily life, work and the community served as explorations of micropolitical possibility, and of working together.
