The Hypermodern is a Beijing-based blog dedicated to commentary and analysis of modern China. Our essays comprise a spectrum of experiences and offer a multifaceted view of a rapidly changing country. We hope to elucidate for our audience what it’s like to live in the Middle Kingdom and further the discourse between China and the West by fostering mutual understanding.
