Abstract

This chapter focuses on the artworks produced by three contemporary Chinese artists: Zhang Dali, Dai Guangyu and Jin Feng. Their subject matter involves common people, and it engages with three crucial discursive formations: violence, socioeconomic inequality, and utopian dreams. These three artists contribute to creating a 'history from below' whose focus is Chinese ordinary people.
