The three artists, Gimhongsok, Chen Shaoxiong, and Tsuyoshi Ozawa, who have all pondered ways to address the contradictions they have faced between life and institutional systems, agreed to create a fictitious city, Xijing, and call themselves Xijing Men. As a group, they make critical yet comic plays about the falsity of contemporary life.

Grantee: Ozawa Tsuyoshi
