New Forms of Calligraphy in China: A Contemporary Culture Mirror

Project description

Using calligraphy to reveal how writing shaped China

Writing, and calligraphy in particular, is a major part of Chinese culture and history. In modern times, calligraphy has evolved dramatically, giving birth to unique art forms that play a key role in creative expression. The EU-funded WRITE project seeks to investigate how these new forms of calligraphy emerged, developed and shaped contemporary Chinese art and culture. It will achieve this through a multidisciplinary approach that aims to reveal how calligraphy has shaped Chinese modern identity and how it reflects the important social and economic changes the country has gone through over the course of the last few decades.
