On the other riverbanks in Berlin is a documentary by Yang Bo about Liu Xiaodong’s 2018 site-specific project in Berlin. Liu’s project focuses on queer and transgender issues. The two main subjects are Sasha Maria von Halbach, a professional actor, and Zhuang Wei, a Hong Kong–based conceptual artist. Von Halbach and her partner have been living together in their beautiful home in Berlin for many years, while Zhuang’s home is merely a place for work and
sleep – every item in his home has a function directly related to his art practice.
