Behavior Art

A Chinese equivalent that describes performance art. It is a new term in arts and may be difficult in articulating unless people understand what they are attempting to create. It is however, a flexible concept that focuses on things that make the everyday, common and community things. It is heightened, refined and reflective of how people behave, move or live.

Cynical Realism

Cynical realism is the term first used in 1992 by art critic Li Xianting to describe the Beijing artist group which painted satirical social realist paintings. The group sought to depict the psychological turmoil experienced when China was struggling with new political ideology.
