In China With Jérôme Sans Palo Fabuš, Ivan Mečl | china | 01.02.2010
IN CHINA WITH JÉRÔME SANS
Chinese art has made inroads into western galleries since the 1990s, but mostly through institutional means or in the environment of private multinational gallery-corporations. The selection is consequently limited and not entirely free, with the same rotation of names and presented with a particular western curatorial lens, lacking both impulsiveness and spontaneity. It might be expected that…

GERMANY IN CONTEMPORARY CHINESE ART
The Reunification of Germany eliminated the most significant ideological antagonism from contemporary history. Socialism and capitalism no longer stand pitted against each other; in the new reality the former Eastern bloc countries are in fact interconnected with the West. Retrospectively, socialism became an abstract ideal, and at the same time capitalism is taking its toll. The historical…
Chinese Art: Persistence of Globalism Leng Lin | china | 01.04.2004
CHINESE ART: PERSISTENCE OF GLOBALISM
A new dynamic in contemporary art over the past decade has emerged with a pivotal role played by biennales and triennales.

In such an environment, where everyone is trying to enter the international art arena, never before have so many local artists had…

LOOPS OF CYCLES (CHEN ZHEN)
Contemporary art has long been consciously oriented towards art produced in Europe and the USA. On the other hand, recent events in other cultures slipping through the membrane of the contemporary art scene are certainly signs of general globalization and the logical progress of expanding borders. The curator Hans-Ulrich Obrist, for example, has already revealed the frequent presence of Asian…

AN INTERVIEW WITH CHEN ZHEN BY HANS ULRICH OBRIST
Hans Ulrich Obrist: Could you say something about your big project of becoming a doctor? As you said, it is a journey you cannot stop after doing one exhibition or a few exhibitions… Chen Zhen: I’ve considered myself a patient for the past twenty years. In China we say that an old patient can become a good doctor without having to study medicine. In relation to my own disease I think I’m good…

LONGING TO BECOME AMERICANS
In mid-August 1998, a gallerist and curator from New York paid me a visit at the National Gallery in Prague. It was his first time in town and first time in Central and Eastern Europe. His gallery is exclusively focusing on Asian art and he himself is Chinese by origin, born and educated in the United States. I showed him our collection of Czech art (he was not in the least interested in early…
