SoengJoengToi (SJT) is a platform in Guangzhou (CHN) founded in 2017. It stems from the needs of artists for a mutual practice space. SJT is located in Changgang subway station, Haizhu District, embedded in a community of local inhabitants. So far, 13 long-term practice projects have been stationed at SJT. The newly founded SYNNIKA space in Frankfurt am Main invites SJT to setup a temporary branch of its organization in Frankfurt. At SYNNIKA the group presents its membership model as well as their artistic practice. The installation features various SJT-related projects such as Fong Fo, Folding Room, Traveller, the Band Hellkitty, BenGuangDaHuaLang, Theater 44, the Round Table Group, with various newspapers, catalogs, self-published zines, publications and videos. On Friday, August 2, 2019 at 17:00, an introduction by independent curator and SJT-Member Li Xiaotian will offer the public an opportunity to have a first view as well as conversations with the artists, followed by an opening event with drinks and food at 19:00. On the day after the opening SJT will host a discussion on the current political conflicts in the Chinese Pearl River Delta.
