What does photography tell us about the lifestyles and mentality in China in the face of the rapid social change? Artists in search of their identity explore the medium of photography experimentally and provide insight into the individual complex worlds of emotions and experiences of their generation.
The publication presents a selection of some 150 works by 40 Chinese artists from the collection of the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung. The photographs, in black and white or shown as dramatic presentations in colour, were produced from the 1990s until the present day. They show people in big cities, in rural surroundings and in the solitude of nature, between vibrant counter-culture and melancholy, and between coolness and confusion.
