Focus on globalization

Contemporary artists in Asia are dealing with the phenomenon of globalization more intensely than artists in virtually any other region of the world. Particularly in China, many artists have reflected the enormous cultural and social changes of recent years. The interaction of different cultures, identity issues in a rapidly changing society, bridging the gap between tradition and modernity – young Asian artists often take a stand on current issues.
