'This book gives a critical account of four of the most significant "avant-garde" art groups active within the People's Republic of China between 1979 and 1989. At its core is a series of extended conversations with members of the groups in question that provide close personalized insights into the conditions of artistic production and reception within the PRC during the early years of post-Maoist opening and reform. The conversations are supported by an introductory essay on the development of modern, socialist-realist and contemporary art in China since the early twentieth century as well as critical readings of the activities and intellectual positioning of each of the groups discussed.' - from the back cover
