The Mercedes-Benz Art Collection Artist Book #7 has been realized in collaboration with Cao Fei, one of the most internationally high‑profile artists in China. This publication brings together three key projects from the artist’s varied filmic oeuvre. With the highly complex virtual RMB City project (2007-2011) and its documentation, our book presents her recent films Haze and Fog (2013), and La Town (2014). Cao Fei’s artist book, which is lyrically entitled I watch that worlds pass by demonstrates commonalities in the three projects’ subject matter, and creates interfaces between them, with the aim of elucidating the artist’s most fundamental thinking and working methodologies. Numerous stills from the various different films, photographs of the sets, sketches, storyboards, and illustrations for reference have been assembled, and have been given a new arrangement by the artist for this publication. This publication was created in close collaboration with Wang Xiaoyu from “The Pavilion”, the publishing entity of the gallery Vitamin Creative Space

With text contributions by Shumon Basar, Chris Berry, Cao Fei, Christian Ganzenberg, Jiang Jun, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Hou Hanru, Hu Fang, Huang Chien-hung and Renate Wiehager.
