About This Item

Timezone 8, 2009. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good Condition. Two small areas of discolouration on front cover and one on the spine, book's contents remain clean and unmarked. Conducted in Obrist's signature interview format, these conversations lead to surprising revelations about how artistic practices in China have evolved. Spanning a decade but concentrated in 2006 and 2007 - a pivotal moment for contemporary art in China as international interest surged alongside an unprecedented pre-Olympic market upswing - these conversations present both a snapshot of an exuberant historical moment and a unique introduction to the work of the featured artists, as they explain and interpret their own trajectories in dialogue with this relentlessly sharp and inquisitive mind. Compiled, edited, and painstakingly translated into English for the first time, the interviews are accompanied by over 200 full-color illustrations. Edited by Philip Tinari and Angie Baecker and with an introduction by Philip Tinari. Artists included: Ai Weiwei, Big-Tail Elephant Group, Cao Chong'en, Cao Fei, Yung Ho Chang, Chen Zhen, Chu Yun, Ding Yi, Gu Dexin, Huang Yong Ping, Jia Zhangke, Liu Wei, Lu Chunsheng, Ma Qingyun, Wang Guangyi, Wang Jianwei, Wang Hui, Wu Shanzhuan, Xu Tan, Xu Zhen, Yan Jun, Yan Lei, Yang Fudong, Zhang Enli, Zheng Guogu, and Zhu Pei. 255 pages.
