The Shanghai Papers is a collection of texts written by the artists participating in Translocalmotion, the 7th Shanghai Biennale 2008 (September 9 – November 16, 2008). The publication aims at an audience interested in an artistic type of abstract ideas, data information, and a layered form of perspectives.

Some texts in The Shanghai Papers speak of specific works, of the context of working for an immense global exhibition, of poetic and theoretical reflections produced by the work, by Translocalmotion, or by both. Other texts assume the form of interviews or deal with the process of the work. But all the texts speak in some way or another of the contemporary topics of mobility, of migration, of urbanity, of public space, of public art, of dreams for the future, of globalization. Aren't those the topics that connect people all over the world today?
