Socialism Good

Commissioned by CASS Sculpture Foundation, UK

2016

In 1991 the slogan “Socialism Good” was planted on Tiananmen Square for a short period during the National Day celebration. In 2016 Zheng Bo re-planted the slogan at CASS Sculpture Foundation in UK. This time, the slogan was left unattended. Soon weeds started to grow.
