This publication is produced on the occasion of group exhibition of the same title held in Shenzhen Art Museum, China in November 2012.

The exhibition is largely a continuation and expansion of 'Image of History', both presenting works combining history with realities. Artists borrow symbols imprinted in the minds of people, and demonstrate reflections of the two diatomic concepts. The art works on one hand emphasize reflections or criticism on collective and individual memory, and on the other hand draw on the Western post-modern art strategy, in which artists often juxtapose, imitate or quote historical images before China's reform and opening up.

Including plates of art works and artists' biographies.
