The Motif of the Circus in Contemporary Art
Originating in late 18th-century London, the circus and its ring represent an antithesis to everyday life.

Her focus always lies on human dignity. This volume provides a wide-ranging insight into the artist’s commitment and creative work. Her oeuvre is more topical than ever today.

A Short Conjectural History
Sculpture is just a word, an English word, which elicits an image in the mind’s eye. Sculpture is a European idea. In China, on the other hand, statues, stele, and other figural objects were made for millennia without being thought of as Sculpture. There was no Sculpture in China. "Imagining Sculpture" is the story of this something that did not exist.
