One of China's best-known conceptual artists, Wang Jianwei uses video to explore the presence of history and relationships of power within China's changing social and economic environment. Jianwei's broad, panoramic chronicles of contemporary society are shown alongside Ali Kazma's closely-observed films of skilled workers – from artisans to doctors – whose activities involve the protection, repair and maintenance of both the human body and social well-being.

This exhibition is shown as part of a collaborative programme organised by the Whitechapel Gallery with GAMeC, Bergamo; Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Oslo; The Institute for the Readjustment of Clocks, Istanbul; Kunsthaus Zurich; Marfa Ballroom, Marfa, Texas; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; PROA Fundacion, Buenos Aires, Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art, Beijing.
