The project aims to dislocate prefixed ideas on Chineseness, and investigate, transform and mediate different viewpoints and perspectives on Chineseness in general and present in particular the personal experience, opinions and experiments of these three distinguished artists. The presentations are to be regarded as temporary settings for an internal dialogue between these artists about their varying degrees of Chineseness.
