”My Communism” poster



The three “posters” by YANG Zhenzhong are collages carrying a large number of newspaper information of the very month when the works were produced, while many key words were circled in red. The “slogans” on the “posters” include: “We eliminate these words”, “We don’t know these words” and in English “WE DON’T KNOW THESE WORDS”. If communism as we were taught were realized, we simply wouldn’t know the concept of these circled words. Nor would it even exist at all.

The work was first displayed in “ “My Communism” Poster Exhibition, TOP Creative Park,Shanghai, China (2011).
