The Process of Painting
Opening: Tuesday, 5 June 2012, 7pm
Curator: Günther Holler-Schuster
The painter Liu Xiaodong is one of the most well-known representatives internationally of a generation of Chinese artists who grew up in a new society marked by rapid and frequent shifts in perspective. He uses the language of form of Socialist Realism and conventional documentary media to lend a voice to daily life against the background of radical change. Earthquakes, changes in landscape, and human-made ecological disasters, as well as social formation based on economic transformation: all this has been captured by Liu Xiaodong.
