Six months before the Twin Towers attacks in new York, 2001, two huge Buddha statues were blown up in the remote area of Bamiyantal in Afghanistan. This dramatic event surrounding the ancient stone colossi - unique proof of a high culture that bloomed until the 13th century along the Silk Road - is the starting point for a cinematic essay on fanaticism, terror and tolerance, ignorance and identity. Oscar nominated director Christian Frei's thought provoking film journeys along a perimeter that both divides and unites people and cultures.

A generously illustrated introduction to 7,000 years of Chinese art - from Neolithic pottery and jade to contemporary video, installation and performance media. By placing the arts in context, the authors introduce a dynamic and continually evolving tradition, rather than a sequence of isolated museum masterpieces. Although chronological in sequence, it introduces relevant themes for each era that will deepen understanding of, and appreciation for, what the authors describe as 'the most abundantly productive, continuous artistic culture in the history of the world.'.

For courses in Far Eastern Art and survey courses in Chinese Art History.This text discusses Chinese art within a variety of contexts--such as archaeological, cultural, historical, social, and ritual/religious. Organized both chronologically and thematically, it covers a full historical span--from the Neolithic era to contemporary art, and includes a wide range of media and settings for art--from elite to popular. An emphasis on the dynamic processes that effect the history of Chinese art: social, economic, political competition, urbanization, markets and tastes, and quests for cultural authority, allows specific works of art to be discussed in extensive detail, while setting them within larger explanatory narratives.
