Steven Dragonn explores how modern Chinese art lost its global connections during the end of the Qing dynasty, which continued into the late 1970s. With the liberalization and opening up of the economy in the 1980s how did art in China develop outside of the established traditional Chinese art system? Contemporary artists in China grappled with this question for decades. Following on 30 years after the 85' new wave movement we look back at the rise of Chinese contemporary art and the recent history of globalization in the Chinese art ecology. Presented in Mandarin.
