798 is a factory that the East German assisted to construct in the fifties of last century. Later, a large number of workers were laid off because of Chinaâ€™s reform and opening up and modernization. Just at the beginning of the new century, 798 has become a remarkable but controversial art park since the entry of Contemporary Art. Who changed 798 from a factory into an art district? With the rise and fall, glorious and shame of 798, what changes have taken place to those people? In the cracks of art expression, political constraints, commercial temptations and disorder management, is the spirit of contemporary art still there?
