Making Mao

Streaming Video - 2010
Rate this:
When the Communist Party took over China in 1949, it engineered a massive propaganda campaign to promote a worker's utopia and make Mao Zedong a god. This program examines the creation of the Mao-centered iconography that permeated the visual, performing, and popular arts as China struggled through its brutal metamorphosis into a modern nation. Artists relate the experience of being forced to work in the Soviet-inspired style that fueled the leader's popularity, as the video tracks Mao's image from revolutionary symbol to its appropriation for kitschy pop art.
