Taking the Dalai Lama’s flight from Tibet in 1959 as its starting point, this book offers a unique interpretation of the ways in which the idea of Tibet has been imagined by Tibetan artists in exile in India and in the Tibetan Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China. Based on the results of six years of fieldwork, during which Clare Harris interviewed and photographed Tibetan artists at work, this book shows how Tibet – real, remembered and imagined – came to be envisioned anew.
