Overview

Children of Marx and Coca-Cola affords a deep study of Chinese avant-garde art and independent cinema from the mid-1990s to the beginning of the twenty-first century. Informed by the author's experience in Beijing and New York-global cities with extensive access to an emergent transnational Chinese visual culture-this work situates selected artworks and films in the context of Chinese nationalism and post-socialism and against the back-ground of the capitalist globalization that has so radically affected contemporary China. It juxtaposes and compares avant-garde artists and independent filmmakers from a number of intertwined perspectives, particularly in their shared avant-garde postures and perceptions.
