ASPECT: The Chronicle of New Media Art, a biannual DVD publication, is pleased to announce the release of ASPECT Volume 18: Export China.

In recent decades, China has undergone massive social, economic and cultural change, altering its citizens' view of the world and themselves. China's artists have rapidly absorbed and reinterpreted the pluralistic styles of Western art, using them to translate the unique realities of life in contemporary China. In turn, many Western artists interested in the play between the individual and society have turned their attention to China as a complex and often culturally loaded subject. This volume contains work by artists from both China and the West, participating in this cross-cultural exchange, responding to it critically from an embedded perspective.

Featuring work by:

Wang Gongxin with commentary by Barbara London
Tsang Kin-wah with commentary by Alvaro Rodriguez Fominaya
