Xu Qu graduated with a MFA in Fine Arts and Film at Braunschweig University of Art, and currently lives and works in Beijing. Xu Qu's art practice investigates aesthetic considerations behind social connections. He attempts to dismiss any unnecessary elements that distract from the theme, using a minimalist approach to simplify the picture. The ultimate goal of the artist is to examine anthropic aesthetics, and the kind of values and thoughts a confrontation or mixture of different aesthetic experiences would bring us in different eras.
