China in/and/is the World

Volume 16, Number 6, November/December 2017
by Lily Chumley

Article Description

In this essay, Lily Chumley explores how the exhibition China after 1989: Theater of the World seeks to decenter Euro-American histories. Can the exhibition be recuperated as an opportunity to challenge such narratives? What interpretative texts might be needed to allow it to be read as a global history?
