Wang Guangyi  mêle dans sa célèbre série « Great Criticism » prestigieuses marques

 
 

publicitaires et imageries de la Révolution culturelle. La carte du Parti disparait devant

 
 

la carte de crédit. A la production de masse doit succéder la consommation de masse.

 
 

Joli leurre car de l’unité familiale à l’unité de travail, tous les groupes se désolidarisent.

 
 

Le délitement des corps collectifs et sociaux passe par la revalorisation du corps individuel.
