summary
The book studies the baroque and the postmodern art and architecture of Macao, as an ex-Portuguese colony founded in the sixteenth century. Examining how the ‘Baroque’ has been used in critical and cultural theory, it uses this to help visitors to Macao understand its complex history, both colonial and Chinese.
