Wang Qingsong

X-Large photo by Wang Qingsong. "Dressed as a teacher, Wang stands in front of a blackboard covered in Chinese and English characters and graphics. While Nike and McDonald’s logos hint at the current wave of Westernization and democratization, the text in the middle of the board - “Let China walks towards the world! Let the world learn about China!” - suggests something much deeper. On the surface an expression of adulation for the developed world, it also raises the question of who, in this new century, will do the leading." (
