We’re 15 years into the new millennium, but our museums don’t seem to be aware. They’re stuck in the late 20th century, the Arrogant Age, with its love of gigantism in architecture and art.
When, and how, will art institutions step up to the challenges of global migration and seismic change in cultural frames of reference? Museums need to experiment.
Negatives by Xu Yong

Of all the books this year, Xu Yong's Negatives may be the best. The images in this unusual photobook are, in fact, photographic negatives taken 25 years ago, during the much-censored Tiananmen Square Protests in Beijing, China. To “properly” view the series' images, one must utilize another lens—whether on your smartphone or camera—and invert the colors to "develop" your own positive result.

Xu Yong borrows the negative image from photographic plates to remind us that the Tiananmen massacre is still forbidden from public discourse by the Chinese government and that the commemoration of this unbearable reality is proscribed even today

This is a smart hybrid work that allows us to think through a well-known topic in a very original way. By combining the physicality of the printed page with the possibilities of electronic devices, Yong offers a different yet amazing experience. This is both a brave statement of political support and an investigation in the ongoing taboos of China's history. Thank you for sharing Xu Yong!
