Curated by Michael Steinberg

Shot in Beijing’s Olympic Park in the fall of 2011, this series of photographs by Anja Hitzenberger reveals a visually and viscerally overloaded fast-food culture that may make some mouths water and other bellies ache. The aggressive graphics and display, offset by the stall workers seeming nonchalance, offer an insight into some of the contradictions in contemporary Chinese culture. Hitzenberger has effectively captured the flavor of the time.

Anja Hitzenberger is a photographer, filmmaker and video artist. Her work has been seen in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the U.S. and internationally.
