Zen in Art :-)

To try to catch up with a society and its culture this rapidly changing AND to build on a nationwide serious art-award at the same time seems impossible to me. To institutionalize the CCAA and to make it independent of changes in the society might help with its reputation - but might be a hindrance on really meeting the chinese contemporary art - as art does not always naturally happen in academic schools. Neither on the market. Best would be to keep a kind of a "zen-attitude" - stay open minded... it is not important to be seen as the best prize, it is not important even to be accepted by all art institutions... what is important is - that the prize stimulates new ways of exchanging with the society, that it adds something important to our cultural heritage. And therefore...insist on your heart and soul to be the resonance-room for your jugdements on art - and trust them. That's enough.

That seems a fair enough advise for me, Gyanda. Thank you.

Dear gyanda jung,
your point: that the prize stimulates new ways of exchanging with the Society based on the "zen-attitude" , made me Inspiration.
