Organised by the Cultural Affairs Bureau of the Macao S.A.R. Government and co-organised by the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macao and the Alliance Française de Macao, the exhibition “Vanishing Techniques – Photography of Jean Baudrillard” opened to the public on Friday, the 10th of May, at 6:30pm at Tap Seac Gallery. Present at the ceremony were the Representative of the Department of Education and Culture of the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Macao Special Administrative Region, Deputy Director Mr. Zhang Xiaoguang; the Representative of the Consular Section of the Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China in the Macao S.A.R., Ms. Chen Ling; the President of the Cultural Affairs Bureau, Dr. Ung Vai Meng; the Attachée for Science and Academic Affairs of the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macao, Dr. Isabelle Saves; the Vice-President of the Executive Committee of the Alliance Française de Macao, Mr. Éric Sautedé; Mrs. Marine Baudrillard; and the exhibition’s Chief Curator, Mr. Fei Dawei. This exhibition, belonging to both the 24th Macao Arts Festival and the 2013 Le French May Festival programmes, features some 50 photographs by the renowned French thinker.

Vanishing Techniques is the most complete and comprehensive introduction to Baudrillard’s work since his death, the photographs having been personally selected by the late thinker’s wife, Marine Baudrillard, and curated by the Chinese-French art critic Mr. Fei Dawei. The art of photography allowed Baudrillard to reveal his different way of looking at and perceiving the world, and his photographic works had great international impact. This exhibition offers the public the chance to experience intriguing works of art while, at the same time, broadening their horizons.

To enrich the public’s comprehension of Baudrillard’s photographic theory and ideas, a seminar was offered on the 11th of May, from 2:30pm to 5:30pm, at Tap Seac Gallery. Two specialists in Baudrillard’s work, Gu Zheng and Che Hio Ieong, joined the exhibition’s curator in presenting and discussing the French thinker’s life, works and research.

Vanishing Techniques – Photography of Jean Baudrillard” runs from May 11th until July 28th at Tap Seac Gallery (located on Tap Seac Square at 95 Avenida do Conselheiro Ferreira de Almeida) and is open daily from 10am to 7pm. Admission is free.
