July 12, 2019

 

“Images of the notice from the Jiangtai Village Management that were plastered around the district shared with The Art Newspaper attribute the abrupt removal to a government crackdown on mafia activity; the text likens artists to ’security problems’ and ‘unstable factors’. ‘They are driving us all away on the excuse of cleaning up the underworld,’ Duan says. ‘We're not prepared at all. And no one has explained it to us.’”
