The Red Slogans

Tiemu Zheng (CN)

This work looks at the phenomenon of dense red slogans in China. It explores the social phenomena that lie behind the density of red slogans. The first part of the work describes the phenomenon of red slogans, the second part examines the origins of the slogans, and the third part considers their social impact through the lens of the public. People seem to be living in a giant “slogan machine”. Do we deserve better ways of communication?
