In the past, people rarely mentioned culture and tourism at the same time, even if they did travel to a certain place because of its unique culture.

However, when the Ministry of Culture changed its name in March 2018 to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of China, it marked a new era of the two concepts developing hand in hand.

The ongoing exhibition A Journey in Love - which opens with a panda statue slowly circling around a green-walled room - explores the experiences of travelers connecting with different cultures in the form of installations, pictures and short animated films.

Andy Warhol is featured among these travelers, through pictures and portraits of him as well as photos he took during his visit to China in the 1980s. Black-and-white photos, capturing a Beijing of a bygone era, were reflected poetically in a large glittering mirror with a more modern design.
