We Are Polit-Sheer Form

Author: (Group) Polit-Sheer-Form Office(政治純形式辦公室)

‘Polit-Sheer-Form Office (PSFO) is a China based art collective founded in 2005 by artists Hong Hao, Xiao Yu, Song Dong, Liu Jianhua, and curator/critic Leng Lin. For a society that has moved far away from communal ideals, PSFO imagines a new Socialism based on the expansive possibilities of shared experiences. The group’s multi-disciplinary projects address the idea of “we” in a “me” world while their activities of talking, traveling, eating, reading, and playing together form the foundation to this practice. As the first comprehensive catalogue to explore PSFO’s philosophy and oeuvre, WE ARE POLIT-SHEER-FORM elucidates this dynamic group’s collective paradigm and attempt to transform political, cultural and spiritual life for 21st century mankind.’ (Back cover)

Published on the occasion of an exhibition of the group’s past projects and new works, held at Shanghai Gallery of Art @ Three on the Bund, Shanghai. Includes a chronology of the group and biographies of its members.
