"Modernity is not a dazzling spectacle or a superficial reality; modernity represents both." - Baudelaire

Just as Baudelaire stated that modernity is contradictory and unstable, the image of a city is also comprised
of a dual construct that is variable and dynamic, forming an intersection of ‘order’ and ‘chaos’.
This Special Issue brings together different cities that have been formed by rapid industrial development.
Nine artists presented in Volume 4 reveal a parallel gaze on the city, rendering subjects in a way that is
neither beautiful nor vulgar. Instead, each image transforms what was once a familiar sight into an
unaccustomed cityscape.
