Art’s condition in The new China

Mass communication in public space has been the norm in China for generations, and the break­through of the Internet can be seen as a natural extension of the proclamations and injunctions of the so-called wall newspapers. Nevertheless, the State in China has as good as always kept a firm grip on the information apparatus, and communication has been dictated by those in power.

In the 1980s’s New China, art, expression and curiosity flourished. That is, until the burgeoning freedom of expression was brutally extinguished in the wake of the big demonstrations during the youth revolt in the spring of 1989. After this, art became less vocal and more commercial, and today social critique inventively gets around censorship via avatars, animation films and (black) humour. Hear about art and the conditions for art and artists in The new China in this lecture by Mette Holm.

Mette Holm has worked with China for almost five decades. She has studied, lived, worked and travelled there and has written a long succession of books about China.
