SPECTACLE AND THE CITY: CHINESE URBANITIES IN ART AND POPULAR CULTURE. Ed. by Jeroen de Kloet and Lena Scheen. Amsterdam University Press, 2014. Cities and Cultures. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 262 pp. with 57 ills. 24 x 16 cm. ISBN 9789089644459 In English.
Publisher's description: As China becomes increasingly modern and urban, artists have responded by imagining the Chinese city at the intersections of the social, material, and political realities of modern life. This volume explores how the city-as-spectacle has been visualized and contested in art and popular culture. Featuring essays by an interdisciplinary team of scholars, Spectacle and the City is as broad as the terrain it covers: with essays by an interdisciplinary team of experts on Chinese cities, as well as leading cultural critics, it goes beyond mainland China to include cities with cultural significance, such as Singapore and Hong Kong.
