A stunning presentation of works by contemporary Chinese artists, from the collection of the Swiss diplomat Uli Sigg, one of the worlds most influential collectors of Chinese contemporary art. This book reflects on the current state of art in China today through a selection of over 50 works by different artists produced between 1986 and 2006 a period of enormous economic and social change in the country with worldwide implications.

Many of the works reveal the tension between current socialist ideals and the new consumerism shifting towards a capitalist economy.
