Discussion with Feng He (Art historian, Heidelberg University) and Ursula Panhans-Bühler (Art critic, Guest professor Beihang University Beijing)
What implications are tied to monumentality in China? How can monumentality be defined in ancient and contemporary Chinese art? Starting from the monumental painting „Suppression of the Lin Shuangwen Uprising in Taiwan“, which is currently on display at MARKK, we will disuss the concept of monumentality with an emphasis on collective memory, provenance and the current boom of Chinese art institutions.
