This book gives a critical account of four of the most significant avant-garde Chinese art groups and associations of the late 1970s and ’80s. It is made up largely of conversations conducted by the author with members of these organizations that provide insight into the circumstances of artistic production during the decade leading up to the Tiananmen Square Massacre of 1989. The conversations are supported by an extended introduction and other comprehensive notes that give a detailed overview of the historical circumstances under which the groups and associations developed.
Paul Gladston is associate professor of critical theory and visual culture in the Department of Culture, Film, and Media at the University of Nottingham.

Editorial Reviews

“Gladston’s interviews will be of value to readers seeking to understand the roots of contemporary Chinese art. . . . an excellent sourcebook through which to discover the contentious, politicized discourse of Chinese artistic modernity in the 1980s.”
