Corporate is an exhibition about prejudices and judgements, about definitions of identity and cultural assets, about heritage and working things out under the conditions of a conformist, global, free market-orientated society.
The Chinese artist Xu Zhen (*1977, Shanghai) is for sure one of the most critical and at the same time virtuosic artists of a generation of early adapters to the art market, and is well known for his cross-border works located between art discourse, politics and pop culture.
