The Sigg Collection and the M+ Sigg Collection bring together works from the early subversive years of modern art in China to the immediate present - with works by such important artists as Ai Weiwei, Cao Fei and Zhang Pei.

Chinese Whispers refers to the children's game “silent mail,” in which people whisper a message to each other that becomes distorted over time. This makes the influence of Western contemporary art on Chinese work on the one hand and the engagement with its own tradition on the other visible - and at the same time the living conditions in today's China are reflected. The volume presents the latest art from China and at the same time examines how the reception of this art has changed in recent years.
