A book

This book reflects the desire of the founders of the dslcollection, to look

systematically at the collection they are creating of contemporary Chinese

art. Beyond a simple idea of accumulating works of art, it is their wish

actively to conceptualise the collection, treating it as an ongoing project

with the ability to further the field of which it is a part. This book offers an

opportunity to consider the dslcollection from its beginnings to its current

stage, and to think about the road ahead in awareness of the contexts

surrounding and influencing it, and upon which it has the potential to exert

an effect. In so doing, this book may present more questions than it is

able to answer; at the heart of the exercise is active engagement with the

question of what it means to be an art collection in the 21st Century.
