On June 8, we’ll be marking the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests with Louisa Lim’s The People’s Republic of Amnesia: Tiananmen Revisited. The China-born author, a correspondent for US National Public Radio, argues that a defining event in Chinese history is being deliberately re-formed, its lines erased by a state-orchestrated program of censorship and forgetting. The painter Zhou Zixi makes a similar point in visual terms in the haunting Dawn—Light Fog, which you can see in our current exhibition, Reformation.
