We live in times in which the world is looking at China as an increasingly influential superpower. But how do people in the country themselves experience the political, economic, and social consequences of its rapid rise? In the recently published monograph “ABOUT US. Young Photography in China”, forty artists from China offer suprising inside perspectives in around 220 photograhs.
The photographs, taken between the mid-1990s and the present, represent a search for identity and shed light on the new conditions of everyday life for a young artistic generation in China. Therefore, the works demonstrate the rich diversity of China’s art scene.
With its most recent publication “ABOUT US. Young Photography in China”, the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung is contributing to the current discourse on China. With critical perception, the photographs engage with great social, political and economic changes. All the published works are also part of the foundation’s contemporary photography collection.
Among the featured artists are Pixy Liao, Yang Fudong or Chen Ronghui.
