In four thematic chapters, An Era Without Memories offers a varied and thought-provoking kaleidoscope of imagery depicting every aspect of urban living, from juxtapositions of old and new to still-life pockets of roadside greenery to digital renderings of closely packed high-rises. These include Miao Xiaochun’s photograph of a vast glass building rising ominously from behind a traditional neighborhood; Wang Jinsong’s collages of the Chinese character used to mark condemned buildings; Zhang Peili’s shots of pastiche Western architecture; Xu Zhengqin’s billboards showing dream residential and commercial developments; and Wang Chuan’s poetic images of abandoned, half-finished, modern buildings.
