For KM

KM, who loves photographs and good music.

This is from the 798 Art Zone in Beijing. A man selling pirated CDs in front of a photo gallery. There is a post coming up about 798 and some of the brilliant art there.

The next picture seems non sequitur and totally banal. But all this talk of KM and ‘Culture’ can only lead to one thing – Yogurt. (If you haven’t read this post, please do).

PS: Graffiti from 798. Apparently, graffiti is only allowed in some places by the state. I wonder, if that means the state also recognizes it as an art form? :)

Wait, graffiti is allowed? Doesn’t that kind of defeat the purpose?

Beijing has a SoHo-like place? Can’t imagine. (Then again, I recently found a book about modern Chinese art and was surprised by how little I knew about new Chinese art..)

Wait, graffiti is allowed?

Chinese democracy, remember?

//So what music was that “pirate” selling?
