Seminar Introduction

The 3rd Today’s Documents exhibition was held on the 4th floor of hall 1 of today art museum on December 11, 2016.
The theme of “The brics countries” , discussing the role of developing countries in the world economy, how the arts reflect and reflect the economic vitality and social changes, and how these changes manifest and develop in the narration of culture and individual life.

Heraldo moskra:Bric countries they are important, or of major economies, their current is relatively fast economic development, but also influenced by modern is very important, in the process of modernization, it is an important part of the engine and the development of their support, they are in the process, also experienced a variety of conflicts, and if we are associated with the past, you can see a very profound comparison and influence.Like income gap increased continuously, and some countries of their current social and economic transformation, and they have no independence before is different under such social background, we can see in this process, we also want to think about, what the society as a whole undergoing a profound change and how subversion.
Artists also use such a theme, they use the power of art and the language of art to describe and express some of the problems faced by the contemporary society.We are planning the exhibition also is in this background, I hope we can carry out the social problems from the perspective of social interpretation, we may be using a variety of artistic language, we may use the document literature and the form of video, and so on, to present to you a very strong art on the shock.We hope that through this form of expression, we can make people realize the complex and interwoven problems in the process of social transition transition. We have a lot of famous artists, of course, there are also some new up new forces they all joined in, that we are going to explore, theme is mainly in the subject and the background of our exhibition they can use their wisdom, their genius to express, in the form of contemporary art to express some of the problems which society faces.
There are a lot of people and they always ask the question, when you are curating, what kind of criteria do you use to select artists?Are we in this process, our artist is to see them how to interpret these complex problems, and we also want to choose which can make a very good visual communication works of art, and we also hope to find the knowledgeable, involves the social problem of artists, such as we have a lot of artists present, so they use their own way, such as some artists is to use their own subjective way to express this, of course, some artists are more obscure ways, more less direct way to express.

Gao peng:In today appear this kind of globalization or collision between globalization and localization of such a relationship, how to understand today's this kind of modernity  , that is to say, in the traditional sense of the geopolitical has a partition of art is not us, that is to say we think today's art, in different areas, different ethnic or cultural tradition of the, are influenced by a lot so in this sense, we today to see the exhibition, is not a original as a sense of the exhibition, so I think that, you may feel, the exhibition itself is a kind of strange, That is isn't what we used to see that in the traditional sense of the exhibition, of course I want to the display itself, we want to reveal the problems, also is in this exhibition is not so a grand narrative, but starting from the individual, each artists from different regions of the artists from individuals, understand today is not only the social daily life, or his personal experience so I think in this exhibition: I think I will see more inside is with your own information to convey, is the power of personal vision to convey it to the real judgment, the analysis of art ontology, and the extension of artistic language, So I think this exhibition, in my opinion, fully presents the potential of a new cohesive art that has happened or is happening or will happen under the conditions of the development of emerging economies led by brics countries.

Jonathan Harris:I also talked about in the exhibition, no matter what kind of art works, what kind of exhibition, in fact, there will be some essence, so what is this essence?There's going to be some social intervention, some political intervention, and we're going to explain what the impact of our current global capitalism is going to be. We're going to have some systemic global institutions, and we're all going to be in this globalized society.That we're back in May, before we were English conference, is the first time we meet, then before that trump has not elected, some events have taken place in the world, more trump has been elected the influence on the global political situation, some thinking in these areas are also being carried out.I hope to give you further introduce in the aspect of globalization we all feel very excited and very happy to see globalization, as there are two recent events, the first is in the 70’ s, is a source of the globalization, which is mainly for the further development of the liberal arts programs in the United States capitalism p economies that is mainly to expand capital to global capital markets.The americans, who control the entire capital market and further control the global capitalism, are faced with some risks, which is one of the driving forces for their development.Trump said:The United States faces a huge internal crisis, both in its own capitalist system and in their efforts to further control global capital markets. We see the rise of Asian economies and society, starting in the 90 s, began to rapid development, especially in China, now the world is in a watershed, we don't know what will become of the future development, but the United States is not is likely to be the master of global power, trump mentioned Mr Putin and Russia's regime, the brics and the situation during the cold war in the speech of trump was analyzed, and the trump also describes the situation in the United States, the situation in the United States will continue, the future development of the global culture, as well as the role of art it is difficult to predict.
So I want to say is, how I was at the art works and art in the correlation among the whole situation, I mainly based on the background of western markets, as a general background I think in China is very interesting, because there is a kind of spirit of marxism in China, it is very different to western society, if we reveal a approximately the culture of state-owned a Louis liu, then further mention the importance of art,Abstract culture emerged in 1969, and further described the whole western culture, a life custom in 1971, these are the development of local culture so what is the main local culture?In fact, we also have some western culture and books that have been translated into Chinese for further release in the Chinese market.So you know there are some books have been translated into Chinese, a very important French structuralism book, isn't translate I don't know, if translated into Chinese for everyone can read some Chinese, so (name) hopes to be able to introduce us to some of the, art is about idealism, it called it science rather than a way of confusion, he said we can understand human knowledge through three ways to get to know the human knowledge, the first is the way science, science is to further understand the nature of society, the second is idealism and consciousness. So there's a little bit of confusion around the world, and art is in the middle. We will have a lot of ideas, also has a lot of different ways of art, art and science actually conscious learning state have some correlation degree, because of the aforementioned separation is art and ideology, we need to get him, but it is not really a kind of knowledge construction, further analogy, it says it is actually the true understanding of the world, like this kind of consciousness morphology can be further shows us that the true nature of the world, I think this is very accurate, can help us to further explore the effects of globalization, and culture, my sense is that, Globalization has brought us very fast changes. The whole intellectual property system can be further improved and we can better experience the spirit of globalization. It also makes us feel very worrying, because of my background is sociology, social history, these disciplines help us better understand the process of globalization, but it can't improve or improve the change, every time I come to China to be able to see him change, I can personally experience some turbulence and changes of China in the process of globalization, China is likely to change faster, the change of China is actually more quickly, based on this situation, we can't depend entirely on the academic to further understand the development of the world, so the art gives us a possibility, Provide us with a kind of knowledge, senior it is the important reason for this exhibition, it chose some artistic creation, the artistic creation can make the process of globalization itself and daily, at the same time also can further show a kind of knowledge, but also show a global social change, so art has a very important role.

However, art itself has no other specific experience, that is to say, the value of art is linked to us through its own production system, and to us from its own capitalist market. So my main focus now is to further understand the global capitalist market and its correlation with the whole art market. I have a new book called global contemporary art, which will be published next year. My focus is mainly like Hong Kong, like the modern history of global art what are some of the changes now? Is it related to technology? Or say? I have a chapter on South Korea and a chapter on higher education in the art of individualism. In fact, one side is also about China, because my main experience in universities is to teach in China. Teaching in China is to teach for higher education, which is the whole system of art development.

We can look at the same work in a completely different way. But in view of the whole exhibition and the role that I have played in the whole exhibition, I would like to congratulate all of you, huang du, for being able to show clearly in your essays, how evil works are interpreted, and how we can understand the various works of creation in a social way. If we look at these works, if we look at how they are presented, how they are interpreted, we can understand that these works are very important for our future life. It can also help us further preserve the relationship between science and art morphology.

Chiba ChengFu:Simple introduce Japan a situation, I think there are about two premises, in the first place (English) of the Japanese called chaos of this situation, of course, this situation not only confined to the bric countries, it is in the art of many countries or regions, have such situation, so before talking about this topic, first of all I want to let everybody to pay attention to, actually this situation also is in produce modern art, leading the circle at the same time, the process of western development also have this chaotic situation, this is I said the first premise of the two premises. The leader of modern art, western art in the intermediate stages of growth and development, is the last of this stage, it itself has entered a, is entering a cannot development, reached the end of such a situation, if so, I think, is the development of art, development to the end, it's the next step is to what? In this state of confusion, is what we call the state of chaos.

The chaos in particular, developed a variety of specific phenomena, so, that is to say, after the development of modern art area, almost all the places are triggered by the western art, began to form the modernization of fine arts, so in this sense, the modern fine arts development area is not so free, no liberalization of choice. However, each region has its own national conditions and regional conditions. Therefore, the development of each region is different.

Shao Yiyang:Put forward some problems, I think this exhibition, localization, the problem of contemporary globalization, I in this album has done a paper, it made an academic writing, then I simply say my opinion, because when I wrote this album, a lot of artists have not seen, I see this time, than I get a lot better than some of the images, and there are a lot of young artist's work, I feel very good.
As art is a tool of criticism, we, as intellectuals, should also criticize and think about the society. Therefore, contemporary art exhibitions are usually critical. In this regard, artists have raised critical questions about globalization.
I think contemporaneity may have various inclusions, such as the multiplicity of existence in different time and space, the ongoing progressive contemporaneity, or the anti-cautionary contemporaneity from the perspective of structuralism. Therefore, contemporaneity comes from diverse social structures, religious beliefs and cultural traditions. It is a social practice and utopian imagination with universal values from a global perspective, sometimes without necessarily conflicts. So what is contemporaneity? Contemporary with the fundamental way, we now existing in a dark, not a real complete window, the window of an essential, we rushed to there is the other shore, have the light of god, there will be, in the dark we see a beam of light in the stars, we at the light is our contemporary is very important, so this is the pursuit of our contemporary, contemporary without the concept of overall, but each of us can pursue the contemporary, so this is a very positive force, the pursuit of freedom, So new forces are playing an increasingly important role globally, and they can change the existing world order. So in this case, art is very important, art can show us the power to strive for contemporaneity, to liberate ourselves as a free force. So art, as an independent creative force of criticism, is shown in this exhibition, which I think will be more and more important in the future.

Xu ke:We seem to have a little change in the form of, I mainly, but also good I didn't see work at that time, I saw the yellow Benedict and their articles, after I saw the article would probably know the structure, content and forms of exhibition and curators theme idea, I think this is very good, have left us empirical mode of conventional thinking and, I think it also put forward some very interesting topic, I think it is very interesting.
 I talked only a little of substance, because everyone is fully the specifically for this feeling, I'm thinking is that the problem is that, under the influence of globalization is all about the brics, or five countries, I just think, that we started thinking, developing countries like China in political and economic pattern, how big is found its own cultural orientation degree. If we use an evolutionary-colored value judgment and model, it will become a Chinese model needed by the west compared with the existing changes and characteristics of Chinese contemporary art.
Because the Chinese and westerners on the understanding of relations between countries, the world and itself there is a difference, or will always have differences, especially for more than 30 years, the Chinese society as a whole into modern industrial society, but people experience and understanding of globalization, is more of a focus on a substance changes brought by the consumer society, and thought and value judgment, is still in their own a kind of cultural features and their understanding of traditional culture, which is completely different from globalization stresses the understanding of the value orientation of human common interests, it is a kind of a kind of nationalization, Or it's more conservative cultural attitudes or social attitudes.
If we use a generalized principle to modify the values of the Chinese people today, this is not very clear. This is the transformation of the pursuit of universal values at the end of the last century, which is still rooted in the utopian image of Chinese intellectuals today, which is a minority in the whole structure.

Yu ke:When discussing the "Another option" of cultural value in the context of globalization, it has already shown that the developing countries represented by China have some demands for their own cultural identity. As the change of pattern of the world political, economic, military, dominated by the United States and Western Europe in the past, reflect the cultural values of the one-way, as we today in the pluralistic situation of the developing countries also want to efforts to stimulate the potential of the cultural power, expects to receive a more equal cultural identity, to power an effective dialogue with western culture.
Question is, under the influence of globalization, we started thinking, developing countries such as China in political and economic pattern, to what extent to find its own cultural orientation, if use a kind of value judgment smells of evolution mode will greatly cover change and self characteristics that exist in the Chinese contemporary art, and become a "Chinese style" in western eyes is required.For the development of Chinese contemporary art over the past 30 years, we have reached a consensus: No matter from which Angle we today, what clue seriously discussed this journey of trajectory, since it is difficult to leave the western modernist cultural ideological trend in the culture of the soil have the mark, especially after the 80 s, as China's social market economy in full swing, internal and external world politics of the profound changes brought about by the economic globalization process, especially the Chinese contemporary art directly into a wider, but also more competitive culture pattern, the change of the position and the culture of Chinese society of the cultural turn and the profound influence on the construction.
The reality of Chinese art is of course inseparable from the impact of globalization.Although today we have a different view of the proposition of globalization. However, I think that without the reference of western culture and art, the economic, political and social changes in the third world countries would appear very abstract. It is hard to imagine to what extent these emerging countries can adapt to the changes of contemporary art from the second world war to today without the generalized rights context of art in Europe and America. Especially for a culture like China, which is attached to national politics, if there is no external force, its own predicament can be imagined. It is because of the influence of western modernism since the last century that Chinese art gradually deviated from the literary track under the influence of political parties, and produced a critical and reflective cultural and artistic content corresponding to social changes. It is also because of "globalization" that we can see the problems of Chinese society through the reflection on Chinese art in the middle of last century. Such reflection and change are not only limited to the field of art, but also occur in economy, politics and thought. From this perspective, without the cultural immersion of Europe and America, we cannot change our conservative art mode, adapt to the changes of this common world, or enter an effective cultural dialogue between countries. In the past, due to the cultural isolation of Chinese society, we needed external forces to change our habitual artistic track. The change here is not only the study of style and language media, but also the transformation of ideology. The truth is that we can no longer repair our cultural wounds and flaws on our own. Therefore, as for the position relationship between Chinese contemporary art and the west, I am not very worried about today's situation. At the same time, I do not think that Chinese contemporary art should continue to set itself in such a "center-edge" dual framework.

Huang du:I then and I cooperation curators, I add my countermeasures of understanding, such as I don't want to speak a lot of theories, because the theory may be in the book are, I can speak some we choose some examples of artist, because may for many, may not understand to the delicate work inside meaning, I think in this exhibition, just like Jonathan also said the book of political problem, I think we have the exhibition itself is a kind of political vision to look at the new art in how to speak, And the very complex things contained in the new art.

Xu zhenxi:We have three phenomena observed, and the first is art industrialization ", art has become an industry, the second is also more popular, the third is art can also get more finance and financialization, this is because the global capitalism and digital technology, the effects of development of art in the 21st century.
Another is a kind of coupling among the whole economic system, in the 21st century later, in the whole economic system, economic system in the United States, as well as the global economic system in the development, according to the American economic system to them as a reference, so if the American economic system collapsed, many country will crash, because a lot of the country's economic system and the United States, the world is only a us-led capitalism market, after these coupled system began to develop in the 21st century, now began to appear a lot of economic power and economic center, China is a very good example.
Wang Chunchen:I found this time a big topic is globalization, capitalism.And of course we go back to the second theme which is the alternative, which is to respond to the first theme, how do we choose in this hybrid growth of globalization and the transnational production of capitalism? That's the position to become a person, isn't it? So this is called another choice, we used to like to say, seeking common ground while reserving differences, we have different views, but it does not hinder our common development, this is the official language. But when it comes to the development of art, institutions and individuals, or even the matching development, it is not easy in this world.

In the context of globalization today, we tell the time, China is already part of the world, it is already part of the world, we have already in the midst of the world, it is important to our consciousness, our subconscious, whether agree with global values, and a system of common things, rather than say you to be you and me is me, if so, we will never be able to do it in the same value system of communication, so that when it comes to global China, to our today's contemporary art and culture have such relationship, specific to each case, have individual character and difference, this is the behavior of the individual, But after all, there are still common things. I think only under the common things can we promote the development of individuals. Otherwise, how can we build our art gallery? How will our private art gallery continue to attract the public? This is agency, an agency if he can't get the support of the community as a whole, it is how persistent development, we know that Rome has nearly 100 years of history, has been built by private investment, now it is not a private is not a country, but the society, is all the social community, form the we hard to do now, there is no state and society to build, so organization intervention, is as much as possible, we do some biennale, art exhibition, art lectures, is in the midst of exhibition to go into our understanding of the world today, in principle, in the traditional sense, Exhibition Chinese do is a picture hanging on the wall, don't need to discuss the concept of so many of today's literature exhibition discussed is the culture of the brics, this sounds not meaning, but today do art and exhibition and the value of cultural institutions have such demands, so another choice is to do art institutions can make a response to the world of a value, so we pursue a common value is the more important thing happened today, is not only art, art here it's a prop, is a way to express individual existence, but this way is more should be responded to the challenge of the globalization. Trump is coming, President park of South Korea is going to step down, the UK is going to leave the eu, the whole world is changing, how is China changing? The change of China and the world, our own to feel this way, our own efforts in institutional environment in China, under the environment of impossible recognize value to society, and social sharing, is the meaning of this exhibition, also includes some of the exhibition, we do also is my some feelings for this exhibition, I also do a brief speech of a microcosm.

YanYan:give no cause for much criticism,Contemporary art in Latin America is particularly good at understanding and expressing the vitality of this hybrid growth, which is related to the nearly one hundred years of magical realism culture and cross-cultural extension in Latin America, as well as the influence of socialist thought.
In general, Chinese artists have gradually abandoned the creative logic of grand narrative and started to ponder issues related to individuals, bodies and development. To a large extent, in China, the dominant culture of official mechanism for Chinese contemporary art is not optimistic about, support for the contemporary art also is very limited, even there are some restrictions, so the Chinese contemporary artist at the same time, the problems in the realistic enough bone feeling, often use of metaphor and subtle way to think about the problem. In the face of globalization, Chinese contemporary art has its own unique features compared with the global political and economic issues. This difference is what we hope to discuss in a group exhibition.
Just also stressed that the energy also comes from the inside the capitalist countries, from the expansion of capitalism, in the process of globalization of world's critique of the economic problems, such as the exhibition, the Swiss herceptin had (Thomas Hirschhorn), Belgium devore (Wim Delvoye), their work is good to do the interpretation of this aspect, proposed to the capitalism under the stimulus of production process and consumption, and capture the value of world labor critique.
All in all, this exhibit is an exhibition of the vitality of contemporary art, which is very specific about the vitality of contemporary art in Latin America, the energy of contemporary art in Asia, the potential of contemporary art in China, and the critical energy of contemporary art in the west. It can also be said that the mixed vitality is blended, in a growing state, and exists in a "relationship". The other choice is not that he represents the direction of the development of contemporary art, but that he provides a way of thinking for Chinese contemporary artists to participate in the discussion of world topics and establish their own contributions to the world of contemporary art.

WengFen:First of all thank you for let me to be here to share some of my art creation thinking and some experience, I am here is the concept of simple introduce my thinking, and I in the process of the whole of creation, in the face of some of the, the whole China's social reality, in my work, my image as a critique of the concept of image is very important, including several aspects, including the watch and shelter, modern city and traditional city village, and so on correlation question.
Under the modern ideological trend of individual collective social desire and the desire of national capital mixed out the truth of the existence of our times, while watching a relationship with reality, there is a shelter and multiplicity watch, both in the watch there is a tendency, especially in the real world under the condition of strong visual landscape, group viewing is often unconscious, and loss of individuality and Ti climbing images, the so-called real world images of the landscape, actually individual mass and independence to the world the mirror image of the cognitive concept of attitude and the real world, however, the landscape is also as another kind of mirror of social consciousness, A symbolic figure, like the two sides, so the focus of my work is not built on technology, but based on the analytical record, reality has given us a big ideological thought way, urban landscapes, this refers to the control of the public individual cognitive sex, make individual imagine, integrity in the way of modern city public control of state, thus requiring a beyond common individual internality eyes to stare at the city scenery, I work in the form of an objective recording head to watch, the presented to highlight the implications, In my photography has always been the emergence of a girl with his back to the audience in uniform, I in the middle school students to play for modernization we mixed with both desire and concern about the mentality of complex sexual impulses, powerful city landscape with new construction building and development of local ground, all show the development of Chinese modern city is in a huge predicament from the Chinese government has repeatedly to the national real estate policy on mandatory regulation policy's history can be seen that, the new city construction land expansion and the transformation of economic structure, still make the industrialization of agriculture and other industries to structure transformation, In traditional rural production and way of life has created a new contradiction and conflict, and bring traditional country with a powerful opposition between modern wave, so in this process, we will gradually found rural traditional way of life slowly disappear my work there is a watch image and consciousness stare at bat, in get rid of this kind of the eye gaze is a kind of widespread ideological concept to watch, this watch covered all things of the world and our integrity and authenticity of the grasp of the world, especially in the process of national comprehensive, urban landscape, It controls our attitudes and ways of seeing, and therefore the gaze becomes an important critical symbol in my work. We know the meaning of the image is constructed in the watch and the real world relevance, so my work by gazing at the horizon, and our understanding of the horizon to put it in a time and geographical dimension to understand this concept, through the staring eyes and watch the students appeared to say so in my work, I am such a way to show me a cognition of objectivity.

Marcos ramirez:Me introduce you to my work, I am a (name) invited me to come here, this is a very important cultural system in Latin America, in California, there is a Mexican culture and the center, they invited me to join their biennale, called 01 biennale, show that there are many different creation are there, they said to call me, this is a very liberal artists, said I from Mexico, hope I can show my work in the middle of the biennale. That now in the process of preparing my, among the cities in silicon valley, I found a very big difference, especially the population distribution of the difference is very big, so I was thinking about at that time, I can put different wood is used to represent different people, I also did some research on wikipedia: I think that is a very useful tool, I use the computer to collect some information, so I used the three different kinds of main wood to represent the three types of people.
We in the entire research process, we did some special studies in the population, we are open both hands to embrace all kinds of different possibilities, we are also thinking about cities, especially in their, because silicon valley has produced the world's most advanced technology we are also thinking, people living in silicon valley, how they are affected by the technology? What are their concerns? What are their challenges? In the process of my creation, I also feel that, in fact there are some people, they are reluctant to completely open, they are not completely open to embrace possibility, they are very worried about the effects of new technology, we can see a lot of people in silicon valley, they hold different opinions and views, their way of life is different. We need to be able to communicate with them so that we can build trust, so that we can really plant the hope that will help us build a better world. As I mentioned, it's really about my work how did I do it? My works also want to show a kind of pursuit and yearning for freedom.

Wim devol:The idea is that there is a group of people, and we may all be struggling to find our identity, that identity is a personal identity in addition to people, for example in Brazil, I'm a Brazilian, I'm a Roman, I'm from a different place, what is my identity? So it was the same with my early works, and I also wanted to find and explore from this perspective. I think it is actually a collection of people. I think to do such works,Is very interesting, so I think it (name) in the beginning, also is, actually he is very globalization, internationalization is he that we want it to do very interesting, is not only for a certain kind of people, but also let everyone be able to experience, not to say that the way I sacrifice a person to bring benefit to another person, I am not by me to smile, such as fatty, or to smile to the Japanese, and then to do an artistic creation, I mean that everyone can enjoy, I feel like I this work actually, is everyone can empathy, they are human common thing, as everyone knows, The machines themselves are actually very global and urbanized, not only geographically, but also from the perspective of our industrialization.People can understand it, they say from their own level, people with some college degrees, they will be better to, they can understand this work, but even if there is no, they can still appreciate, to understand this work. So this is a 3-year-old, and they're going to look at this, and what's his background?Because we know that this is not just the machine itself, and contains the he is actually a production machine, in fact I worry about is that one day the machine that would really be a useful thing, this is my most concerned about, we know that in fact the museum has a lot of money, they contacted me in a museum exhibition after they contacted me, they also hope that I can work in that kind of exhibition, but I refused, another Japanese museum, museum is a technology, they also contacted me, they also want to show this piece of work, but this is not a museum of art museum, So I refused, because you can think, is that you even have one other works, they are also very interested in this one of my work, they are able to hope that you can control, it is a production, one is in the production of baby diapers, paper diapers, they also want to use our machines hope that through this way, you can better use this machine to produce more suitable for baby diapers, but I didn't promise, because I hope my this machine is a work of art, is completely don't need any useful, so we have been saying, on the history of the world, Art has done some very adapt to the change of history, and the contribution, such as (in English), he made a work, so this work, but also has made a contribution to our history, moreover in our conversation, is also involved in some other ways of communication, in exchange, we talked about, is our interpretation and art for art's belief and some criticism, I want to ask, as you do this work is how to think?
I actually to art or skeptical, I said this small work, that we will, we could know the past, we put some works of the masters in the past, we eat it deconstruction we put it down we convert it to something we learned, we mixed it up, and then in combination, we finally made our own things, for me, in fact this is itself also is showing the art, I believe it also included is a medium,Medium of this role, I have to do this work, the works with (name) also have some similarities, I also very worship him, said (name), he is a 19 th-century art concept, that he is an artist, he thought the artist said very specifically, what they do, whatever it is, so will become an artistic activity, because he drew on doing this work, I think in the 21st century, I don't believe there will be a unique creature, or unique species, to make unique things, it is belong to the idea of the 90 s, from my perspective, I think more, in fact is that we can be to think that we humans of different ideas, we have some different that include animals, so this is some of our privacy, we as humans, we may now be given, such as to the machine is very main, is really like (name) in his work he wants his this thing is some purpose and some objective,It really supports the concept of art, we talked about Japan before, we talked about the Japanese culture is very special, and it is also very elegant culture, it is also influenced by the west in the mid 90s, we are thinking, what role can art reflect? Then we also need to go through the stage of art, including our art at the end of the day whether it can be more mature, what is it? We have to think, what is the use of art for the future? This is my last question, we are in a special time, we know there were some artists they are controversial, that these artists, they in fact, I was a very good student I also in learning to everybody, no matter what I'm learning, I also need to know what we had learned to influence on us, because our world is a whole new world, like Asia, now in a certain extent, has dominated the world of our art. They are actually shaping the whole situation of our art. Japan is also a very lovely culture, this is very special for us, it is not conform to, or is different from western us a lot of lovely colleagues feel Japanese culture is not belong to the real art, they were surprised, but when we see these works of art, they feel very confused, they are thinking, 'said what is art? They think it's probably just a fad that won't last, and that the boundaries with our lives, with fashion and design, are too blurred, with brands. Because you don't see very clear boundaries, is that the norm? Or what? So now we have some very interesting artists, they actually for the culture of Japan is very lovely, very lovely to Japanese culture is very interested in, they are dedicated to do research in this regard so that we in this also gradually formed some new understanding, so I think it is the history of art, it is very important. This lovely Japanese culture may continue to stay, and in the future in history, at least the next three years or 40 years of the mainstream.

Zhao yan:First of all, I think globalization as a kind of expression, it may simply be a representation, we in the depth of the world for us, we are in each culture, various nationalities in different regions, and we have our own cultural background, may be our understanding of the globalization, we in the process of personal growth is a phenomenon and a representation, so I think we just today's exhibition of works from the works, is a mixture of the brics as the theme for the theme of the exhibition, so we can see from these works that is under the appearance of globalization, May the results may impact a lot for us, I want to you to explore the influence of globalization, globalization is not how much in common, the number of unity, these things does not make sense for our discussion, we only emphasize differences can generate meaning, so our understanding of globalization, is set off from work, to talk about some problems from the perspective of differences. So first of all, I think it's the second half of the theme of the conference is called the alternative, a system involvement and personal practice, I think these things happen to account for the difference of existence, the system is a way of standardization and generalization, but we have a variety of choices, have personal approach, behind have a Iraqi artist Devon pan's work, I think this work is very real. Means, to decide the state of the art is not our grand mechanism, these so-called globalization, but our life is in Iraq, we have seen, determine the artist's work, life depends on our work, and not to say that our work is from a certain consciousness of globalization, this is the problem of two aspects, the key is how we understand an important impact brought by the globalization.

The second point I want to talk about the art of globalization, when we talk about art, don't know if you have the art of language into consideration, including in the process of magazine's introduction, we introduce the domestic forefront of western contemporary art, you will find that, in the most authoritative art exhibition hall, is a universal language of art, such a statement is used to mean, so this kind of expression, I don't want to use the word western China, but also from the capitalism, from global capitalism of icon in this context, to the present state, we want to emphasize how to grow, Emphasize personal choices I think this is a reflection and response to the problem of personal, this is our current status, of course, in the artistic language, the more we see is difference, I just want to say a inside this difference, is that we mentioned technical differences of art language, when we go to the various research significance today exhibition hall, don't know if you have, Chinese audiences have been to Germany a museum, we see is a very frontier technology, he took the form of technology to art, we see the exhibition of money is mixed of various art forms including device image photography, etc. For China, China is still in the process of understanding and learning the western modern art and the most cutting-edge western art. Especially today, the so-called new technology art in China is this new media art. What is his biggest problem? Is that we now create these works of art, he is just not the departure from the new technology, the so-called new technology and old technology, it is also China's problem, it is related to the Chinese art education system, is the cultivation of the students is from plastic arts, until now, about how to turn into this new technology, there is a deviation, I think this is Chinese contemporary art in the forefront of a new generation of technology in this field, the development of a very important problem faced by, finally I want to say is, from the perspective of pluralism, this exhibition, I think we Is he emphasized actually happens to be under the background of globalization a pluralism of a state, I want to side wall of the Russian artists created works very vivid reflects a problem, we can see the victory of the victory of Africa or Asia, Africa's victory is African consumer white, male female consumption, Asian victory, too, just changed a kind of identity, this let me think of the multicultural advocated by the 80 s on, in 2000, as the emergence of a state of silence, this also with the world pattern change after 911, and these factors related to social and political regime, So the framework of art in art, in the system to do some things, through these works, alleged racial, gender, physical problems, still exists, in today's context and there will be some variation among today's system, there will be some obscure performance, these things are very interesting, all gave us a very instructive thought, today I want to make the third literature today art museum exhibition is a very good sample, today we face of contemporary art in the process of globalization, in some of these so-called the central region to present some of the condition, It provides a very good reference and a very good document for us to understand the current situation of contemporary art and discuss the problems of contemporary art.
