The Changing of Culture Interface and Chinese Hyperreality in New City Magazine: When Modern Chinese City Encounters Postmodern Context

Wei Hua Wu.

Chinese new city magazines are more than magazines. Not only are they culture interfaces to promote the exchange of ideas, knowledge and information among cities and their readers, but also they are cultural forums to care about contributing to the varied and critical debate about how to shape the Chinese cities for a complex future as well.

The magazines are used as important information tools for cultural researcher to understand the inter-crossing circumstance between modern city and the postmodern social context.

we want to explore how the culture interface is changing from a traditional Chinese stereotype to a global viewpoint, and what happens when the narrating reality replaced by new Hyperreality when the city encounters postmodern context.
