This is the catalogue of the 9th Shanghai Biennale from October 2012 to March 2013. Relocated to the Shanghai Power Station of Art, a converted power plant, this edition is titled 'Reactivation'. '"Reactivation" focuses on urban memory and the [World Expo 2010]'s resources, getting its finger on the pulse of China's modernization, vividly clarifying the mission of contemporary art to be a source of care and change. The key phrase "Intergrouth [sic] is energy source, and others are mineral resources" reveals the core thought of cultural concern and switching of vital energy; it also emphasizes the important topic of cultural diversity and coexistence.' —Xu Jiang, Director of the Academic Committee of the 9th Shanghai Biennale
The thematic exhibition is divided into four sections: Resources, Revisit, Reform, and Republic. In addition, the Biennale has for the first time employed an Inter-city Pavilions model to move towards further internationalization and to truly infuse the Biennale into the heart of the city. Also documented in this catalogue are special projects including the Shanghai Ark and Zhongshan Park Project, and the workshop series 'Academy of Reciprocal Enlightenment'.
