This book is a reedited translation of the author's doctoral dissertation submitted at the Department of Art History of the University of Heidelberg in 2000. It gives a picture of the whole array of art making in China from 1979 to 1989, a period that begins with the end of the Cultural Revolution and ends with the closure of the China/Avant-Garde exhibition held at the National Gallery in Beijing in February 1989. With preface by Lothar Ledderose and afterword by Norman Bryson.
