It's a disheartening story familiar to city residents: the government declares imminent domain and a historic neighborhood is leveled in the name of modernization. Documentary filmmaker and graphic designer Ou Ning and artist Cao Fei co-produced the Da Zha Lan Project, which chronicles the fate of Beijing's historic quarter and its residents as the city renovates in preparation for the 2008 Olympics. Situated near Tiananmen Square, Da Zha Lan was a throwback to the days of the Emperor's rule, with winding streets and traditional restaurants, but has become home to the city's poor because of unsanitary conditions.

Academies and universities have made history in that they gather outstanding artists and develop a teaching program. Sites of teaching and production such as the Kunstgewerbeschule (School of Arts and Crafts) in Vienna, Bauhaus in Weimar, Dessau and later Berlin, WChUTEMAS in Moscow, Black Mountain College in North Carolina, and the Hochschule fÃ�ï¿½Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã�Â¯Ã�Â¿Ã�Â½Ã�ï¿½Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã�ï¿½Ã�Â¼r Gestaltung (Academy of Design) in Ulm have influenced and shaped the development of art just as greatly as individual creative personalities have. In the 1970s and 1980s, the Department of Media Study at the State University of New York at Buffalo became one of these places of, teaching and mediating, in the area of Media Art, developing into what was perhaps to the most influential school for media in the twentieth century.
