Inclusion Paradox Sighting: Chinese Artist Living in Germany Captures East – West Worldview Differences

  • September 17, 2009

Artist Yang Liu, who is Chinese and lives in Germany, captures through illustration the first two of the three steps of being crossculturally competent: self awareness of one’s own culture and awareness of others’ cultures. Look at how she calls out worldview differences between West (blue) and East (red) so that we can, paradoxically, have inclusion. If we internalize that these differences are real and that they affect nearly everything we do, then we can move to Step 3 which is to manage the differences.

    Nice illustrations.
    I agree most of them and would like to add one:

    “FACE”!

    This is the core of Chinese culture.
