Globalization euphoria and enthusiasm for the West are on the decline in contemporary China. Critical voices make themselves heard in artistic and cultural circles. Many turn towards their personal everyday lives to take stock. Their questions revolve around concrete experiences in the radical upheaval of lifeworlds, the continued significance of traditions after many of them have been thoroughly uprooted, and the paradoxes produced by the predominance of neo-liberalism. The seventeen positions articulated in this volume provide a vivid illustration of a ?new thoughtfulness? in a wide variety of aspects ranging from aesthetics and art to theater and photography.

Jorg Huber is professor of cultural theory and aesthetics at the Zurich University of the Arts and head of the Institute for Critical Theory (ith). His research areas include aesthetics and the theory of the political in a transcultural context. He has been travelling to China for more than 20 years. Zhao Chuan is a writer, theatre worker and art critic. He has published in fiction, non-fiction and contemporary art history. He is the founder and director of Grass Stage, an important theatre group in China.
