“DON’T TALK ABOUT POLITICS, DON’T TALK ABOUT SEX!” (2018)
collaboration with Yihan Chen
This is a participatory performance simulating a reading class in Chinese education system. The reading texts are excerpts from public opinions about sex and politics in contemporary Chinese society, adapted from news, interviews, and social media comments. The dialogue style represents the various voices in society. Through an extreme class form, we examine the education system in the context of “Socialism with Chinese Characteristics”, to reflect on the influence of spoon-feeding education over individuals’ ideological construct.
