Introduction on the publication:
Hong Kong/ Beijing/ Singapore, they have very different ways in contemporary art progressing, but also contain unpredictable crossover links in between. This book is mirroring the historical tracks railed by the alternative art communities in the 3 cities, which was studied and documented by Tse Yin Mo during 2007-2008. At the meanwhile, Mo wants to find out how the alternative art community was condensed, and marked a defining way to local contemporary art development. In parallel with Beijing 798 Art Zone and Singapore alternative art communityˇ¦s situation, Hong Kong art practitioners could take references from them to fore view the future vision of local contemporary art.
