Long March Project – Avant-garde

“Long March Project-Avant-garde” was a project executed in Hamburg and New York City between 2006-2007 that circled around topics of the “avant-garde” and “performance art”. With the rapid entrance of Chinese contemporary art onto the global art stage, it became increasingly important to provide an explanation of the social and political context behind this development. “Avant-garde” stimulates the public to discuss and participate in definitions of the avant-garde and performance art through audience participation and cooperative discussion and dialogue on the means of creation and methodologies of contemporary art, and by gathering together artists, curators, and the willing public to walk backwards and partake in the work of the large-scale public performance team.
