Beijing22 Talk #3 Ten years after the Olympics “北京22”演讲第三期:奥运会十年后

Beijing22 Talk #3
Ten years after - What impact did the summer Olympics have on Beijing?
Unfolding China’s mega-event urbanization model

Organizers: Goethe-Institut China, Beijing22
Date: December 15th, 16:00 - 18:00, 2018
Venue: Goethe-Institut China

About the Talk

This summer many photo series of abandoned and decaying former Olympic sites were published by foreign media outlets and marked the review on the legacy of the 2008 Beijing Olympics a decade later. We want to take it further and discuss what impact this mega-event had on the capital. In what way does the Beijing pre- and post-Olympics Beijing differ? Did the Olympics benefit the urban and social development? In what way did the international image of China change through this global event? How are events like the Olympics utilized for a Chinese urbanization model?

Our third talk in the series of Beijing22 will examine the actual impact this mega-event had in the long run. For a better understanding of future developments, the Beijing22 Talk #3 will cast a backward glance at how events like the Olympics were used to legitimize urban reforms under tremendous time constraints. Based upon the archive that Beijing22 is creating on the notion that those who do not know the past cannot understand the present, we will look at the past Olympics, their impact on the today and what can be learned for the 2022 Olympics.

Next, to two short presentations, we will give the audience a first glimpse into the project “Beijing 2022: No problem/China’s ambition for the 2022 Winter Olympics: turning cave villages into Davos”, by our first year's Beijing22 fellow Tsai Ting-I. Together with Matjaz Tancic, and Christiano Bianchi, the project documents the change along the route from the old Olympic Stadium to Chongli, Zhangjiakou, and Yanqing, which are some of the developing areas towards 2022.

关于演讲

今夏,外媒发布了许多被遗弃或荒废的前奥运场馆照片,促使人们在十年之后重新关注2008年北京奥运会留下的遗产。就此,我们将进一步探讨这一超大型活动对首都的影响。奥运前后的北京有什么区别?城市和社会发展是否从奥运会中受益?通过这场全球活动,中国的国际形象发生了怎样的改变?奥运会这样的活动,在中国的城市化过程中起着什么样的作用?

“北京22”系列讨论会的第三期将考察这一超大型活动长远的实际影响。它将重现在十分有限的时间内,奥运会这类大型活动如何促使城市改革实现合法化,从而帮助我们更好地理解未来的发展。“北京22”一贯主张了解过去才能理解现在。基于这一理念,我们将回顾往届奥运会及其对今天的影响,总结值得2022年冬奥会借鉴的经验。

随后,我们将通过两段简短的展示,让观众初步了解“北京22”新成员蔡婷贻的项目:北京2022:没问题/中国的2022冬奥会愿景:将洞穴村变成达沃斯。在这一项目中,她与马特加兹·坦西克和克里斯蒂亚诺·比安奇合作,记录从旧奥运场馆到崇礼、张家口和延庆这一路上的变化。这些地方的发展均受益于2022年冬奥会。
