Release Year: 2011
798 ArtDist was originally an old factory built with the assistance of East Germany in 1950s. After the reform and opening up, with the change of policies, a large number of workers in this old factory were laid off and forced to stay idle. Just as China's modern art residence sprouted, 798 ArtDist came into being。Now it has been from a factory number to an art district, which displayed a process of conceptual transformation of the art industry. In the two mountains trapped by political constraint and commercial temptation, is contemporary art still pure? 798 ArtDist shows us the modern version of Along the River During the Qingming Festival.
Now the 798 ArtDist is too lively! Government intervention, enterprise management, fashion concern, and a steady stream of tourists, the chaotic flower gradually tries to confuse people’s eyes. I can't connect it with the place full of weeds in 2002.
In this era, nothing can't be consumed. Some people speak so much to a dry mouth, while others can only shut up. Art is just McDonald's, and we all prefer being stupid.
I decided to record the truth, a small part of it. It took me more than two years to complete, and nearly 100 artists and people in the art world were interviewed back and forth.
Thanks to all those who are unwilling to shut up.
