Do Nothing - from China to Enschede

Do Nothing - from China to Enschede

Do Nothing is a project by The Art Education Group, artists Zhang Bin & Ye Hongtu, artists-in-residence at ARE studio in Enschede. The artists were invited by Cheng Liang, curator of Dalian Zhongshan Art museum, to participate in the exchange program between Dalian (China) and Enschede.

The project focusses around a banner and is a protest against the omission of public affairs in current Chinese society. The Art Education Group brought the banner to Europe to make a statement and to worldwide satirize and criticize the contemporary society, politics and contemporary art for their dereliction of duties.

The exhibition is the result from a collaboration between the city of Enschede, Dalian Zhongshan Art museum (China) and ARE (Artist Residencies Enschede). The exhibition is open to visit 17 - 27 August at XPO, artist-run space in Enschede. More information here.
