The Didaktika project helps visitors to explore certain key ideas of the exhibitions through educational spaces, and special activities.

On the occasion of the exhibition Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World, this didactic space presents a comprehensive timeline to contextualize contemporary Chinese art.Beginning with the death of Mao Zedong and the end of the Cultural Revolution in 1976, this chronology provides an insight into the major social, political and economic changes that impacted the lives of Chinese artists and the artwork they produced. At the same time, global geopolitical events also impacted the rise of China as a major power of the 21st century.
