Monograph published in conjunction with Gao Shiqiang's solo exhibition of the same title at Iberia Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing from April to June 2009. It gathers major works by the artist from the mid-1990s to the present, accompanied by his notes, journal entries, sketches and essays by critics. Chronology of works included.

'Gao Shiqiang observes the changing values of societies and individuals, and what appears and disappears with changes of contemporary China, vigorously working on a cinematic scale of video and film narratives for the recent five years. The historical discontinuity, cultural rupture and deepening conflict between generations, which have been imposed to most of Asian countries by the turmoil of the 20th century, are also unquestionably found in the Chinese society, though in a different aspect: that is, an absolute value of a period vanishes fleetingly or is judged in another way and a legend at one time is degraded to a transient past or a failed present to the next generation.' - excerpt from essay by Kim Hyunjin
