Arthub and MOUSSE launched a collaborative publication of a trilogy: Shanghai Contemporary Art Archival Project 1998–2012, Arthub From China to a Global Network 2008–2018, Aurora Museum and Arthub, Contemporary Art within a Historical Collection 2013–2016.
The aim of these three publications is to trace the artistic development in Asia from 1998 to 2018 through the eyes of practitioners both inside and outside the continent. Presenting primary sources and archival documents, along with analytical discussions and debates, the three books lay down the foundations for an unconventional, non-academic approach to historicization which reflects their own subject: hybrid, alchemical artistic projects emerging from a context driven by rapidly changing local and global needs, impossible to categorize in a systematic manner.
Arthub From China to a Global Network 2008–2018 includes two of Xiaowen Zhu's film projects: 40+4 Art Is Not Enough! Not Enough! and Oriental Silk.
