EDITORIAL

 

           Estelle Bories, who wrote her dissertation at the Paris Institute of Political Studies (Sciences Po) on contemporary Chinese art, reexamines for us the historical context within which this issue emerged.  She is interested in the origins of the Chinese avant-garde, in the Woodcut Movement, and in the internationalist standpoint adopted by the writer Lu Xun in the 1930s, all of this with a concern to understand the questions of artistic references and equality that have been posed from that time until today.
