After the political opening of China, artists made use of their new options. They tried out new techniques and made contentual statements. I think in a first period a denial of everything that was prohibited before was dominant. A second period might by characterised by orientation towards the west. With growing self-confidence, some artists now go back to traditional techniques and contents and find their very own way of doing contemporary art up to international standards. I guess that this process as well as the art works which resulted help us to better understand Chinese society.
