DESCRIPTION (ENG)

During the Democracy Wall campaign in 1978, Yi Jin Shen post a poster entitled "the fifth modernization" claiming the significance of the liberty and democracy in China. 33 years passed, and after the tragedy of the 4th june, what has ever happened on "the fifth modernization"? Since, the original spirit is uncompatible nowadays.

How to spread out a throught, and perserve the values to another generation? How to distort the "truth", and to fight back a throught on the contrary?

It's not about right and wrong, it's all about methods and tricks. Think of a simple slogan with esence and expression, it's not hard to plant the values in one's heart.

I searched the docmantaries about the 4th of June and some communism songs thought internet. By abridging and jamming the words and music I generated two sound tracks and boardcast thought this installation. The upper one is about the words from the government, and the lower one is about the messages from students, workers, savants, etc.

The method of repeating and looping the sentences I call it "the sixth modernization".

ARTWORK DESCRIPTION (CHI)
(within to 1000 Characters/ please begin with http://  for artwork website link)
在1978年的民主牆運動, 魏京生在北京西單貼出名為《第五個現代化》 的大字報,宣揚民主自由。長久以來,人民為把國家建設成一個真正民主的社會拼出血汗,犧牲了無數的生命。然而經過33年,經過六四的悲劇後,今天「第五個現代化」是否有改變?還是,這個口號已不足以形容今日的社會境況?

如何使一個思想宣揚,如何使一個價值觀完整的傳承?
反之,如何改寫歷史的真相,如何反擊一個思想並拉攏投靠?

不存在是與非,只有方法與手段。握要簡明且搧情的宣傳口號和七情上面的演譯,再加上洗腦式的循環再循環,觀念便可迅速植根於人民內心。

我從網上找來現存的八九民運紀錄片,部份文革歌曲,截取傳達不同訊息的句子和音樂製作兩段聲帶,上邊播放當權者發放的訊息,下邊播放來自學生,工人,學者等的聲音。

在不斷的洗腦後,或許就會出現第六個現代化。
