Issues of Contemporary Art and Aesthetics in Chinese Context

Issues of Contemporary Art and Aesthetics in Chinese Context (Chinese Contemporary Art Series) by Eva Kit Wah Man
English | 2015 | ISBN: 3662465094 | 103 pages | PDF | 2,8 MB

This book discusses how China’s transformations in the last century have shaped its arts and its philosophical aesthetics. For instance, how have political, economic and cultural changes shaped its aesthetic developments? Further, how have its long-standing beliefs and traditions clashed with modernizing desires and forces, and how have these changes materialized in artistic manifestations? In addition to answering these questions, this book also brings Chinese philosophical concepts on aesthetics into dialogue with those of the West, making an important contribution to the fields of art, comparative aesthetics and philosophy.
