Monograph of Taiwanese artist Yao Jui-Chung, featuring works produced from 1988-2007. Yao Jui-Chung is one the most prolific art practitioners of his generation in Taiwan. As an artist, his works include installation, photography, performance, video, works on paper and sculpture. Yao is also a curator, art critic, gallery manager, teacher as well as an art historian who is actively archiving Taiwanese contemporary art. Behind all these roles is an intellectual whose work explores the major issues of his time and generation, especially the cold war ideology during Taiwan's martial law period (1930s-1987), the development into advanced capitalism, and obstacles in its way toward democracy. Yao's biography is provided in the book.
