Planet Marx intends to search for historical texts that respond to our current crises in cultural imagination. Our assumption is: each time the world goes through change on a planetary scale, thinkers from all fields, whether they be Sci-Fi writers, ethnographers, or Marxist literary critics, will search for understandings of a new relationship between nature, ecology indigeneity, and technology as active adaptation to the environmental crises.

Sheng Project is a joint curatorial project between the Long March Project and Institute of Contemporary Art and Social Thought in China Academy of Art. Launched in 2015 as a longue durée enquiry into the complexity of its subject, the project takes Zheng Shengtian (Sheng), an eminent pioneer in Chinese contemporary art, his life and art career more than seven decades, as the subject of research. By scrutinizing his encounters in art and life experiences for more than a half century, it attempts to reactivate our sense and perception of Chinese art and society in the Revolution and post-Revolution era.
