DIFFERENCES BLOSSOM. China’s contemporary arts ecology

China, which has been considered as a world superpower for many years, holds a key position on the global geopolitical chessboard. Apparently, the complex situation of the country does not hinder, but rather emphasises the need for a critical vision of many unresolved political, social and economic issues, which expresses itself through a plethora of initiatives revolving around independence. This issue of Garibaldi – which is a result of the cooperation with Institute for Provocation, a multidisciplinary collective based in Beijing, presented in the exhibition calendar of THE INDEPENDENT at the MAXXI from 12th October to 26th November 2017 – extends the mapping process to the dynamic independent scene of China, dwelling upon some of the peculiarities imposed by the territory and the overlaps between artistic practices and different contexts.
