'Re-Imagining Asia brings together a wide-ranging group of contemporary artists and thinkers who explore the cultural and artistic imagination of Asia. Beyond the often mythologized "idea" of Asia, the contributors investigate artistic heritage and political orientation, as well as the tensions between tradition and modernity. Through the visual image and the written word, they move towards a definition of Asian values — both aesthetic and intellectual.' (excerpt from back cover)
The exhibition this publication accompanies was held at the House of World Cultures, Berlin from March-May 2008, and at the New Art Gallery Walsall, Walsall from February-May 2009.
