" This book presents an expansive selection of striking photographs, together with first-person accounts from his private diary, which RongRong made between 1993 and 1998 within the artistic community known as Beijing East Village - now poignantly described as "a meteor in the history of contemporary Chinese art.”

RongRong’s acutely composed and richly expressive images captured scenes of daily life among fellow young, aspiring artists, and created now definitive documents of iconic performance works by Zhang Huan and Ma Liuming, among others. Often highly challenging works, their performances and photographs would send an instant shockwave throughout the Chinese avant-garde, and later the global art scene. Revisiting these texts and images anew on the occasion of this publication, RongRong has composed an absorbing personal narrative of an artist coming into his own.

RongRong’s Diary. Beijing East Village also serves as an invaluable, first-hand record of a burgeoning artistic community, its precarious political context, and the real lives behind a pivotal moment in Chinese contemporary art. "


Cent-vingt-quatre photographies en noir et blanc à pleine page et, pour la plupart, en belle page, prises par RONGRONG entre 1993 et 2002.
Cet ensemble photographique, qui documente la vie des jeunes artistes chinois et de leurs performances, est accompagné de nombreux extraits - journal tenu entre 1993 et 1998, lettres à sa sœur, notes de travail, etc. - en regard des photographies.

La Collection Walther - Neu-Ulm et New York - conserve de nombreuses photographies de RongRong.

Signalons la présence d'Ai Weiwei en 1994 et en 1995.
