    “The End of Communism is one of my very first works that I have done for the Whitney Biennial online project. The title seems to be controversial, in reality it’s not about wishing communism to end, in reality it’s about the idea that a new type of communism with economical special treatment will replace the previous decades’ communism in China. So, it’s a playful 15-second view about the idea of the Chinese flag, which has been the central symbol of the Chinese educational system to introduce communism to the children in school. The playfulness of the piece introduces the idea of hope for change and transition within the same regime.” (Yi Zhou)
