The Forbidden City by Geremie Barmé( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Forbidden City (Zijin Cheng) lying at the heart of Beijing formed the hub of the Celestial Empire for five centuries. Over the past century it has led a reduced life as the refuge for a deposed emperor, as well as a heritage museum for monarchist, republican, and socialist citizens, and it has been celebrated and excoriated as a symbol of all that was magnificent and terrible in dynastic China s legacy." "The Forbidden City's vermilion walls have fueled literary fantasies that have become an intrinsic part of its disputed and documented history. Mao Zedong even considered razing the entire structure to make way for the buildings of a new socialist China. The fictions surrounding the Forbidden City have also had an international reach, and writers like Franz Kafka, Elias Canetti, Jorge Luis Borges, and Mervyn Peake have all succumbed to its myths. The politics it enshrined have provided the vocabulary of power that is used in China to the present day, though it is now better known as a film set or the background of displays of opera, rock, and fashion." "Geremie Barme peels away the veneer of power, secrecy, inscrutability, and passions of imperial China, to provide a new and original history of the culture, politics, and architecture of the Forbidden City. Designed to overawe the visitor with the power of imperial China, the Forbidden City remains one of the true wonders of the world."--Jacket
In the red : on contemporary Chinese culture by Geremie Barmé( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Illustrated with fascinating cartoons and photographs and rich with facts, anecdotes, and events. In the Red provides a narrative history of Chinese culture during the past twenty years, exposing the complex relationship between "official" culture (produced, supported, or sanctioned by the government) and "nonofficial" or countercultures (especially among urban youths and dissidents). Investigating what goes on behind the rhetoric of the Chinese government and the dissident community, author Geremie R. Barme questions mainstream Western perceptions of cultural developments, artistic freedom, and popular lifestyles in modern China." "This bold account of the cultural predicament of the world's most populous nation provides insights available nowhere else."--Jacket

An artistic exile : a life of Feng Zikai (1898-1975) by Geremie Barmé( Book )

16 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although Feng was known for his so-called casual drawings, he was reluctant to classify his art. According to Barme, much of his writing and painting was rooted in a philosophy of self-expression. Difficult to classify in relation to existing Chinese political and social nomenclature, Feng remains, to a large extent, an enigma. He was sympathetic to the average man and the impoverished peasant, yet he was a romantic, and often identified with the increasingly politicized intelligentsia. A devout Buddhist, he was a close observer of nature and children, and while his art appeared gentle, it often carried a strong message."--Jacket

This film attempts in the space of a two-hour documentary to create an inner history of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (c.1964-1976). It provides a multi-perspective view of a tumultuous period as seen through the eyes--and reflected in the hearts and minds--of members of the high-school generation that was born around the time of the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, and that came of age in the 1960s. Others join them in creating in the film's conversation about the period and the psycho-emotional topography of high-Maoist China, as well as the enduring legacy of that period

"For nearly 30 years Lois Conner has been traveling to China to photograph the juxtaposition of contemporary architecture, including the National Stadium "Bird's Nest" in Beijing by Herzog & de Meuron against the ancient ruins from the Gardens of Perfect Brightness. The book uses images and text, ideas and sensibility to reflect and meditate on the rising power of China in the world context and in the context of China's history and cultural landscape. Beijing: Contemporary and Imperial reflects the unique photographic vision of Lois Conner (on the transformation of Beijing) and it is extended by the structure of ideas developed by Geremie R. Barme's traveling exhibition of these photographs organized by the Cleveland Museum of Art, opening in the Spring of 2014 will continue on to additional venues, to be confirmed. Lois Conner is a Guggenheim Fellow, and is included in major museums in Australia, Great Britain and throughout the US, among them are MoMA, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Art Institute of Chicago, Getty Museum, and SFMoMA.
