HD Video, 7'20 min, 2015

Bauangriff is about the building and demolition cycles in Beijing's periphery. It refers to the phenomena of 'tuji jianfang' (construction assault), a local building practice in which houses get built just to be demolished.
The journey shifts between vast and continuously changing peripheral landscapes and the massive advertising screens that occupy the city and promote progress and a better life.
