Politics, Theology Chinese Contemporary Art : Reflections on the work of Wang Guangyi
Wang Guangyi's art is significant not only in China but across the world: this book investigates his artistic path from a new perspective. For any reader interested in understanding contemporary Chinese culture and art, this book provides a unique viewpoint: it approaches the story of a Chinese contemporary artist from the perspective of the history of ideas and art rather than that of news and politics. It adopts methods and approaches easily understandable by Western readers in order to draw them closer to the enigma that Chinese contemporary culture represents.
