"Art Factories"

You may not be checking Jim Fallows’ low-quantity/high-quality blog all that regularly, so don’t miss this post on “art factories” in China — and especially the accompanying photos.

This leads me to a probably crazy thought. The phenomenon of artsy types moving to somewhat sketchy neighborhoods in search of affordable rent is well-known. But do you know what’s a lot cheaper than Brooklyn? China. Then we could start reading breathless reports from the US-China Commission about China’s menacing efforts to corner the world’s hipster reserves.
