The fiction of art was very romantic before the revolution, as light as a feather, when Picabiya said: “You serious people, it smells worse than cow dung. As for Dada, it smells nothing, it is Nothingness, nothingness, nothingness.
It is like your hope: nothingness. It is like your heaven: nothingness. It is like your politician: nothingness. It is like your artist: Nothingness…” When social revolutions are constantly in progress, from Dada to punk, from Fluxus to Situationist International, cultural groups and organizations of various genres are all permeated with dissatisfaction with reality. , The party’s fighting spirit swept through like a storm. Looking back at all of this now, it is like “a feather falling in the sky.”
The Exhibition “The Storm Valley —— How to prevent wind from destroying a fictional community?” Through three chapters, a fictitious non-existent loose community is created, the “wind” is metaphorized as a sudden crisis, and the difficulties that every community group is facing today are discussed. We should clearly realize that the cultural construction behind the community lies largely in fictional elements. What makes us think that the here and now are the best? It is the purpose of our discussion today.
