Chinese Stories Interpreted through The Riverside Scene at Qingming Festival

By 李杨


宋代的《清明上河图》之所以能够在上海世博会上成为"中国"乃至"城市"的镜像,是由这幅绘画所包含的丰富的文化政治想象——帝国魅影与市井情怀所决定的。《清明上河图》讲述的东京——这个"12世纪的世界首都"的故事不仅在为我们重写城市史提供动力,另一方面,它还在为时下的人文学科"在中国发现历史"——为寻找"多元现代性"的努力提供想象力;与此同时,它还标识出当代中国对自身世界地位和文化价值的想象。这个重新讲述的中国故事将"帝国梦"与"市井情"组合在一起,它不仅包含了自我观照,也内在地整合了他者的观看方式。That The Riverside Scene at Qingming Festival of the Song Dynasty is entitled to be a mirror of "China" and even the "Chinese metropolis" at Shanghai World Expo 2010 lies in the plentiful cultural and political conceptions contained in the scroll—the obssession with an empire and the marketplace sentiments.In this panoramic painting,the story of Dongjing(东京),the cosmopolitan metropolis in the 12th century,can not only provide us with new resources in rewriting the urban history in China but also supply us with the imgination for "the discovery of history in China"—a current discipline of humanities—in its pursuit of "multivariant modernity".Furthermore,it also indicates the concept of contemporray China about her position in the world and her cutural values.The retold Chinese story,combining the "empire dream" and "marketplace sentiments",has not only embodied the self-reflection but also integrated inherently the viewing manner of others.021-82
