After 2000: contemporary art in China

Caroline Ha Thuc
Chinese artists consider themselves as privileged witnesses to a society in deep flux. The sheer variety of their work reflects this increasingly complex and ceaselessly changing world. To them, art is a work-in-progress, kept vital and relevant with exciting new visual languages and their own energy and freedom of mind. A new generation of artists has emerged who embrace the idea of belonging to a borderless, international art community. Featuring more than 100 artists (many interviewed first-hand), this reference book analyses how art has evolved against a backdrop of radical social, political and economic change since the turn of the century. It is the fascinating story of contemporary art in 21st century China.
