One Minute Art History: Cao Shu Captures Evolution In Art Styles From Ancient Egypt To Basquiat

Cao Shu is a Filmmaker and educator who lives and works in Hangzhou, where he teaches at the China Academy of Art. ‘Art history is a long tale which tells us what happened in the past, but cannot tell us where new opportunities lie. The specific image of each genius exhausted with their life, is just a fleeting image in the film. The entire film is about waiting. Waiting is absurd, like art, a kind of eternal behaviour with no purpose, no ending.’ – Cao Shu
