Text by Li Yongzheng and Lü Peng and David Rosenberg
The first international volume on one of China’s most controversial conceptual artists, renowned for his eclecticism and attention to the sociopolitical scene.
This comprehensive visual monograph provides a documentation of Li Yongzheng’s works, ranging from performances to installations, video to open-ended participatory projects. The artist is renowned for examining China’s most thorny issues, such as human rights and personal freedoms. In this volume, he reflects on the theme of borders by questioning the concepts of “nation” and “abroad,” “us” and “the other,” trying to explain the condition of today’s China: more and more connected with the “outside” world and fragmented “inside.”
