Contemporary Asian Art

Ingrid Commandeur

‘It is interesting to withdraw from one’s own usual context and meet a new world, especially today, when cultural and ideological Hybridizations have become an irreversible fact. (…)

The winner is the one who masters the two sides of the battlefield’, Chen Zhen. Ingrid Commandeur (1970) is an Amsterdam based art critic and editor at large of METROPOLIS M, Magazine for contemporary art (2004-present). From 2003 until 2005 she did a research project about the institutional context of upcoming contemporary artscenes in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Seoul and Tokyo. This has profoundly influenced her practice as an art critic. Next to articles related to this project she wrote articles about many different subjects, ranging from ‘Art and censorship after 9/11’, international exhibitions (Sculpture Projekte Münster, Documenta), to most recently an article about the international shift from public to private money in the arts: ‘Organized Magnanimity. The New Art Patron’.
