Curated by the chief architect of CCTN, Bo Hongtao, and the chief architect of Pills, Wang Zigeng, the exhibition includes design works completed by professionals from different fields, such as architecture, film and stage set decoration, graphic design, literature, documentary, photography, and multimedia art.

The concept of the exhibition follows the cabinets of curiosities tradition passed down from European Renaissance. Through a series of installations using spatial montage in the Church, the exhibition presents an immersive drama. The curators have reproduced “Dormitory,” “Worker’s Club,” “Drawing Room,” and “Furnace Preparation Room,” and other representative moments of production and living for the exhibition.
