Event Description

The exhibition is organized by the Red Chinese Studies Navarra (RNECh) with the collaboration of the University of Bristol, and includes 50 photographs that cover the political and economic transformation of China in this tumultuous period, as well as scenes of everyday social life of China. The snapshots were taken by professional and amateur photographers, and in many cases, show that the West had vision of China.

The thousands of foreigners from the last third of the nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth went through the Asian giant for as merchants, soldiers, officials in concessions from Western powers, or just as travelers took or bought, pictures of China that caught his eye. These snapshots went to libraries and public and private collections in the West, primarily in Britain, from which have been rescued to form part of the exhibition now being presented at the Public University of Navarra.


This exhibition is a result of collaboration between teachers at the University of Bristol, University of Lincoln and the East Asia Institute of Lyon -The Historical Photographs of China Project. Its objective is to locate, store and disseminate photographs of the various collections of images of modern China are mostly in private collections.

The exhibition will travel throughout the month of March to the building of the Health Sciences, located in Barañain Avenue, s / n, during the month of April, will be provided on the campus of Tudela.

Please check the University website for exact dates and times of the exhibition.
