About the Work

This installation consists of a monument-like sculpture (which depicts the scene in which Beuys and his students used a broom to sweep up all the rubbish in Berlin’s Karl-Marx-Platz that followed the left-wing workers’parade in May 1, 1972), a purple sand flower pot (made in the 90’s by renowned artisan Shi Yun, who was born in the 40’s and acquired the socialist realist artistic style before and during the cultural revolution) and a summer repairman polo uniform (on which embroidered a logo of Mercedes Benz). Course(as in political course) attempts to discuss the nature of sequences. Be it a political sequence, an ideological sequence or that of economy, sequences eventually frame the boundaries of one’s understanding and actions.
