Abstract

The complexity and confusion of styles and intentions are true characters of modern Chinese art. This book explores the developments of Chinese art in the previous century, applying theories to question and reinterpret concepts that are normally taken for granted. It demonstrates how modern Chinese art history has been - and can be - written.
