The King of Kowloon: The Art of Tsang Tsou ChoiThe King of Kowloon: The Art of Tsang Tsou Choi

Published by Damiani.
Edited and with preface by David Spalding. Foreword by Hans Ulrich Obrist. Text by Hou Hanru, Ou Ning.

An icon in his native city, Tsang Tsou Choi (1921–2007) covered the streets of Hong Kong with his graffiti for over 35 years, using a brush and ink to proclaim himself “the King of Kowloon”--heir to an imaginary birthright that fueled a lifetime of artistic output. With his signature style, Tsang wrote himself into the collective memory of a generation caught between British and Chinese rule, leaving behind an oeuvre that includes countless outdoor projects (the majority now extant only in photographs), myriad works on paper, board and cloth, as well as painted objects. This milestone publication documents Tsang’s influential art and enduring legacy. With over 100 reproductions, a foreword by Hans-Ulrich Obrist and critical essays by Hou Hanru, Ou Ning and others, The King of Kowloon is the first comprehensive survey of Tsang’s complex and fascinating artistic output.

Michael LinMichael Lin

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Nicolas Bourriaud, Hou Hanru, Bruce Grenville, Vivian Rehberg.

“My work has moved away from the idea of a painting as an object,” Michael Lin (born 1964) observes. “I'm more interested in creating a painting as a space to occupy.” Lin makes painted installations that reconfigure institutional spaces with designs appropriated from Taiwanese textiles. This publication is the first comprehensive overview of his work.

Yang Yong

Published by Blue Kingfisher.
Edited by Yang Yong, Huang Yang, Fei Yuenong. Interviews by Tong Chen, Eleanor Heartney, Hanru Hou, Karen Smith, Martina Keoppel Yang.

At first glance, one might compare the young Chinese photographer Yang Yong to Nan Goldin or Larry Clark, for he, too creates sexy/abject pictures of marginal urban youth. However, when one examines Yang Yong's work more closely, one connects it with its larger context, the "model" city of Shenzhen. In this light, Yang Yong's work can be seen as a kind of photo-roman that exposes the specific state of being that is shared by his generation, who have immigrated from all over China to reinvent themselves in this artificially created "Special Economic Zone" that is supposed to be a testing ground for China's new urbanization and modernization. Yang Yong is a sensitive and accurate observer of his generation, though his work is by no means documentary: The scenes he depicts are all directed and set up by the artist himself. Perhaps this is why Yang Yong's work always radiates a certain cinematic flair.

House of Oracles: A Huang Yong Ping RetrospectiveHouse of Oracles: A Huang Yong Ping Retrospective

Published by Walker Art Center.
Edited by Philippe Vergne and Doryun Chong. Essays by Hou Hanru, Fei Dawei, Huang Yong Ping and Philippe Vergne. Foreword by Kathy Halbreich.

This first monograph to look back over Huang Yong Ping's work to date finally brings the full range of his accomplishments to an international audience. As a contemporary artist in China working with diverse traditions and new and ancient media, Huang has built an artistic universe comprised of provocative installations that challenge the viewer to reconsider everything from the idea of art to national identity to recent history. He was once one of the leading figures of the Xiamen Dada movement--a collective of artists working to create a new Chinese cultural identity by bridging trends in Western modernism with Chinese traditions of Zen and Taoism. He continues to confront established definitions of history and aesthetics with sculptures and installations that draw on the legacies of Joseph Beuys, Arte Povera, and John Cage as well as traditional Chinese art and philosophy, juxtaposing traditional objects, iconic images, and modern references. House of Oracles echoes that blend by binding photographs, essays, and striking sketchbook pages, which are presented with translations of the artist's calligraphy, in a matte soft cover with two facing spines--it opens with the plates on one side and the essays and artist writings on the other.

Mahjong: Contemporary Chinese Art From The Sigg CollectionMahjong: Contemporary Chinese Art From The Sigg Collection

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Edited by Bernard Fibicher. Essays by Ai Weiwei, Feng Boyi, Matthias Frehner, Christoph Heinrich, Hou Hanru, Li Xianting, Pi Li, Uli Sigg and Berhard Fibicher.

China is booming! In the wake of economic liberalization, the nation's art scene has taken flight as well. The Swiss collector Uli Sigg, formerly his country's ambassador to Beijing, has followed the rapid pace of development since the 1980s, compiling along the way the world's largest collection of contemporary Chinese art, comprising more than 1,200 works by some 180 artists. Mahjong, named after the popular and ancient Chinese game of chance, presents more than 200 paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, video pieces and installations from Sigg's collection. Alongside them hang such curiosities as vintage Mao posters. In addition to a number of internationally famous works, such as Ai Weiwei's Han vase with Coca-Cola logo, Fang Lijun's bald heads or Xu Bing's “Xinglish” calligraphy, this book also offers readers a unique opportunity to discover tremendously gifted artists still largely unknown outside China.

Sheng Qi: Madness, AppropriationSheng Qi: Madness, Appropriation

Published by Blue Kingfisher.
Essays by Huang Du, Hou Hanru, Lois Keidan and Wang Ming'an.

For the past 20 years, Chinese artist Sheng Qi has been creating remarkable works of art in diverse media, approximately 100 of which are showcased here in full color. A prevalent theme in his work has been the study of the body: of body language and its culture. (When he left Beijing in 1989, he cut the little finger off of his left hand and buried it in a flower pot.) Since returning to China after completing his artistic studies in London, he has been selected to participate in the Nippon International Performance Festival, and the recent International Center of Photography exhibition, Between Past and Future, where his photographic work was selected for the cover of the exhibition catalogue. He is also one of the few artists in China to concern himself with AIDS and to become involved in local awareness campaigns.

In this first monograph, Chinese photographer Yang Yong explores the fictions and lusts of a young generation in Shenzhen.

Chinese Contemporary Art Awards 1998-2002

Published by Blue Kingfisher.
Edited by Ai Weiwei. Essays by Alanna Heiss, Harald Szeemann, Hou Hanru, Li Xianting, Yi Ying, and Uli Sigg.

...since the last revolution of the arts at the end of the 60s, there has been no subversive art; good artists, yes, but the subcutaneous rebelliousness has disappeared in the west, and that explains my interest in China. Whether work is traditionally painted or sculptured, whether painting is undermined by rolloing picture scrolls or by videos, subversiveness is always part of the message. This may be explained by the context: artists who stay in the country want to change things and want to gain freedom of action... --Harald Szeemann
Revolution, subversion, and rebellion run throughout this compilation of interviews with, texts on, and works by the 23 artists who won the Chinese Contemporary Art Awards between 1998 and 2002. Jurists included Harald Szeeman, Alanna Heiss, Hou Hanru, Li Xianting and Uli Sigg.

Chen Zhen: A TributeChen Zhen: A Tribute

Published by P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center.
Edited by Jeffrey Uslip and Rachael Zur. Essays by Jeffrey Deitch, Eleanor Heartney, France Morin, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Jerome Sans, Hou Hanru, Foreword by Alanna Heiss and Glenn Lowry. Introduction by Antoine Guerrero.

During the last five years of his life, Chen Zhen expended his energies to create a body of work that poetically articulated his knowledge of traditional Chinese culture and Western avant-garde art. Born in Shanghai in 1955, Chen grew up during the tumultuous years of the Cultural Revolution. When China transitioned out of that era, he became interested in combining traditional Chinese philosophy (forbidden under Maoist rule) and Western practices as an alternative to the government's official cultural ideology. The resulting body of work held as a central theme the creation of harmony through difference, taking the human body, illness and medicine as metaphors, mixing cross-cultural social dynamics before multiculturalism and globalization had ever been articulated. Exploring the intricate and often paradoxical relationship between the material and the spiritual, the community and the individual, interior and exterior, Chen used sound and everyday materials such as candles, beds, chairs, and even chamber pots, linking the physical world to the spiritual, ritualistic one. The result was an aesthetic immersed in the traditional past but aligned with the present. This catalogue accompanies an exhibition held at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in tribute to the artist, who died from a rare medical condition known as autoimmune hemolytic anemia in 2000, in Paris, where he had emigrated as an art student in the mid-80s.

Hou Hanru: On The Mid-GroundHou Hanru: On The Mid-Ground

Published by Timezone 8.
Edited by Yu Hsiao-Hwei. Essay by Hou Hanru.

Hou Hanru is undoubtedly one of the most dynamic and innovative curators and critics on the contemporary art scene today. Known for such ground-breaking exhibitions as Cities on the Move (co-curated with Hans Ulrich Obrist), Out of the Center, Parisien(ne)s and the Kwangju Biennial in Korea, his work addresses questions of globalization and identity, understanding contemporary art practice as it exists beyond geographical and regional boundaries. This dense, excellent collection of his writings and interviews is divided into four sections: “From China to the International,” “ From 'Exile' to the Global,” “Global Cities and Art,” and “Interviews, Dialogues, Conversations.”

How Latitudes Become FormsHow Latitudes Become Forms

Art in the Global Age

Published by Walker Art Center.
Edited by Philippe Vergne. Contributions by Philip Büther, Vasif Kortun, Baraka Sele, Kathy Halbreich. Text by Paulo Herkenhoff, Steve Dietz, Cuauhtemoc Medina, Hidenaga Otori, Hou Hanru, Vishakha Desai.

The rise of globalism has created tremendous challenges to old economic, political and cultural paradigms, changes that are increasingly reflected in diverse artistic practices across the planet. If disciplinary boundaries are now crossed as easily as geographic ones, how does the new internationalism that we are facing affect aesthetics and artistic production? Is there a link, for example, between the rise of video works and the global availability of digital media? Does the global information age facilitate an international language of art and an alternative reading of history, from art history toward art histories? From the perspective of a museum of modern and contemporary art--a purely European construct--the art institution has to overcome a major contradiction, one that exists between its mission of permanence and its mission of change. How can cultural institutions contribute to the revamping of their own structures now that the hegemony of Western modernity is being challenged? How can museums connect with new audiences through different practices, different scholarships, and different interpretive strategies that grow out of the sedimentation of their own history? To invite and encourage such dialogue, How Latitudes Become Forms looks at current scholarship on globalism and changing curatorial practices, and identifies critical models provided by artists themselves, featuring thought-provoking essays and conversations by curators, critics, and cultural programmers from across the world, as well as multidisciplinary artworks by more than 40 artists from Brazil, China, India, Japan, South Africa, Turkey and the United States.

Dedicated to the blind spots of globalization, to those mental and geographic barriers beyond which access to and participation in global networking--and the cultural and societal models that come with it--are not feasible, not allowed, or simply not wanted, the catalog for Ars Electronica 2002, the Festival for the Arts, Technology, and Society, features selected texts and exemplary projects pinpointing the vehemence with which the political momentum of art has returned to the agendas of intellectual discourse and the practice of art itself.

Yung Ho Chang: Atelier Feichang JianzhuYung Ho Chang: Atelier Feichang Jianzhu

A Chinese Practice

Published by Map Book Publishers.
Edited by Gutierrez & Portefaix. Contributions by Lars Lerup, Yung Ho Chang. Text by Ruan Xing, Hou Hanru.

Perhaps China's most internationally acclaimed architect, Yung Ho Chang is particularly concerned with architecture's role in expressing and reflecting the indigenous culture. He advocates the wide use of bamboo as a building material in Chinese urban design, as put forth in his Bamboo City, exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2000, but while he focuses attention on the changes taking place in Beijing, he is mindful of the globalizing context in which the city is developing. In the past decade, Chang and his Atelier FCJZ (fei chang jan zhu, or “unusual architecture”), which he founded in the early 1990s as Beijing's first private architectural firm, have created a wide range of intellectually provocative urban projects in China that continue to receive acclaim.
