BLURB

Sometimes if you leave Shanghai even only for a couple of years, a couple of months, or a couple of days, it feels like being in a different place. But new blocks replacing little houses along crooked lanes is part of the flow of life. Yet, shikumen lane houses and Art Deco palaces remain scattered around the city, telling stories of the past. No matter how fast history is changing around these neighborhoods, it is still as though rickshaw riders cycle around the Yu garden or sampan boats float along the Huangpu River. But sometimes it feels like we are witnessing stages of history in dimensions parallel with each other. It feels like we don’t even have to leave the city to see anything change. Streets next to each other belong to different worlds and eras. Crossing the lines that divide these worlds is like having the opportunity to live a thousand lives and being lucky enough to continuously reincarnate as a human, again and again, or maybe as a cat, curious about and hungry for what comes next. [András Gál]
