The Body at Stake: Experiments in Chinese Contemporary Art and Theatre
'This publication enquires into the role and treatment of the body in the visual culture of contemporary China and Taiwan. What meanings are assigned to the body in artistic practice, what does it represent and what (hi)stories does it refer to? Considerable importance is ascribed to the body as a means of orientation and placement; as an arena and medium of social experience.
'19 Chinese artists, theatre practitioners and theorists describe their personal experiences, put their thoughts and views up for discussion and explore how art can shed light on the individual and collective experiences that emerge in the wake of historical change and the anticipation of a newly won freedom.'
