New publication by members: Edited volume on “Visual Culture Wars at the Border of China” (Palgrave MacMillan)

ReNetMoCoCA members Paul Gladston and Beccy Kennedy-Schtyk together with Ming Turner have recently published a highly engaging edited volume titled Visual Culture Wars at the Borders of Contemporary China: Art, Design, Film, New Media and the Prospects of “Post-West” Contemporaneity (London: Palgrave Macmillan 2021). The book presents theoretical as well as analytical outcome of the AHRC UK-funded project ‘Visualising Chinese Borders’ in historically and critically informed perspectives addressing Greater China. It comprises nine contributions structured in three sections – “China and the South Sea”, “Art and Technology”, “Gender and Sexuality” – and conceives of visual culture wars as “comprising resistances on numerous fronts not only to the growing power and expansiveness of the Chinese state but also the residues of a once pervasively suppressive Western colonialism/imperialism”.
