Combining a range of content with self-reflexive examination by scholars and practitioners, this edited volume interrogates the contemporary significance of the avant-garde. Rather than focusing on a particular region, period, or movement, the contributors bring together case studies to examine what constitutes the avant-garde canon.

As a former British colony (1842-1997) and then a Special Administrative Region (from 1997 onwards) practicing the "One Country Two Systems" policy with the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong has witnessed at all times how relations are formed, dissolved and refashioned amidst changing powers, identities and narratives, given that the decisions that had moved the city in the past were not made upon the consensus of the local population. In its post-handover, post-hangover years, the 2014 Umbrella Movement and the 2019 Anti-Extradition Bill Protests among other events have revealed the multiple appearances and connotations of Hong Kong's local. At the intersections between real-life events, cultural production and consumption, the book is an interdisciplinary study that extracts and examines"local relations" through the lens of the things and places that stand or that have once stood for Hong Kong's "local". With cultural icons as an agency, the book offers lessons to learn from the city by opening up manifold postcolonial perspectives to confront and interrogate the volatile experiences in the new millennia - unprecedented since the Cold War era - shared by Hong Kong and other regions. After all, what does it mean, or take, to live in the contemporary world when the local, global and national are constantly given new meanings?

An icon in his native city, Tsang Tsou Choi (1921-2007) covered the streets of Hong Kong with his graffiti for over 35 years, using a brush and ink to proclaim himself "the King of Kowloon"--heir to an imaginary birthright that fueled a lifetime of artistic output. With his signature style, Tsang wrote himself into the collective memory of a generation caught between British and Chinese rule, leaving behind an oeuvre that includes countless outdoor projects (the majority now extant only in photographs), myriad works on paper, board and cloth, as well as painted objects. This milestone publication documents Tsang's influential art and enduring legacy. With over 100 reproductions, a foreword by Hans-Ulrich Obrist and critical essays by Hou Hanru, Ou Ning and others, The King of Kowloon is the first comprehensive survey of Tsang's complex and fascinating artistic output.

This in-between phase, without major dramas, where history was only with a small 'h', is the subject of this locally orientated micro-historical analysis of one of the world's great cities – which had so lost self-confidence in this period that it started promoting itself as 'Asia's World City', but which might yet prove to be a city that changes China (and therefore the world). Specifying this time, through a collection of colour photographs taken during a randomly chosen twelve-month period, David Clarke presents a year in the life of the city in which he has lived for the last two decades. An antidote to the tourist picture-postcard view of Hong Kong which is so often propagated to locals and visitors alike, these images and their accompanying text are produced from a proximity which enables both a critical engagement with the city and a celebration of its uniqueness. Personal in its perspective, this extended photo essay invites you to join a fabricated journey through the real space of Hong Kong, looking awry at scenes too often photographed before, and looking anew at scenes too often overlooked.
