Young Chinese Artists: The Next Generation by Christoph Noe, Cordelia Noe, Xenia Piech

The artists presented in this book came of age in a time when freedom of thought and expression was possible, if not exactly permitted. Unlike their predecessors, these artists did not feel a compulsion to politicize their work. The result is a generation that accepts materialism and economic growth as a part of the Chinese experience—and this paradigm is apparent in their arresting and often shocking works of art. This book also gives voice to other representatives of this generation outside the art world, which puts the artists presented here in a broader cultural context. This volume features thirty artists, examples of their work, and short texts about their art and lives in China.
