Introduction

A city is a real-life stage, where characters of our time are deeply connected with one another, where surreal scenes are played out every day in this spectacular stage setting, and we affect one another spiritually and sensuously with our stories. Broken Landscapes: Have Our Cities Failed? is a question that directly brings out the topic. The concept behind the exhibition attempts to dispel the optimism in modernization. The artists’ works and observations highlight the visible and invisible aspects, the various phenomena, and the life stories within cities. This exhibition seeks to redirect its attention to the sense of urgency that must be faced by human society. It then further discusses how modern state governance responds to the actual state of social development. When striving to build an ideal modern city, we must think, in terms of developmental strategies from a materialistic angle, how mainstream values such as, Neoliberalism, elite governance, Developmentalism, economic alliances, and energy consumption, can resolve the issues concerning the urban carrying capacity of our cities that is on the edge of collapsing. In particular, as it is more and more common to see international conflicts, panic during a pandemic, environmental change, displaced refugees, class struggle, and Isolationism. Whether a city succeeds or fails reflects the future possibilities of human civilization, and this future might not be a road of promising prospects.
