East Meets West: Infographic by Yang Liu Shows Differences Between Germans and Chinese (24 Photos)
Because we can travel around the world and visit different cultures, people have noticed cultural differences to this day.
Yang Liu, a young artist from Beijing who now lives in Germany, demonstrates the social and cultural differences between the Eastern and Western worlds in her project ‘Ost trifft West’ or ‘East Meets West’. The piece conveys a strong message about the differences she has personally experienced. .
“Ost trifft West” is a series of infographic posters comparing Germans and Chinese in an accurate and humorous way. Infographics highlight important human factors such as self-awareness, opinion expression, and mood.
Yang Liu claims that he is frequently asked how he collected such content, such as whether he used interviews, research, or theory. It’s been a very personal experience of mine for 17 years and this piece was made as a chronicle of my own life,” she said. As an artist who grew up in multiple cultures, she doesn’t feel like she belongs to any one.
So without further ado, I encourage you to explore the differences captured by this incredibly observant artist.
