3000 years ago, porcelain was invented in JingDe Zhen. The city has since then brought together artists, artisans and material culture. Themed “Materials, Materiality, New Materialism”, the new programme launched is funded by the Chinese national government and by Tsinghua University in Beijing.

With an artist residency program (twenty one-year residencies), an open call (funded), and an exchange program for students and professors with leading global universities (such as Columbia University), the program launches a long lasting cooperation between the arts, the humanities and the material sciences.
