This project look at the political environment in China during the production of this work: how the communist government taking advantage of its collaboration with capitalism by reclaim the leadership upon Chinese media.
In 2019, after President Xi Jinping reiterated the party's leadership through Center News, the Chinese media quickly acted to show their loyalty. Political propaganda in media has accelerated the outbreak of this ‘inflated’ patriotic enthusiasm around citizens. My father is one of them. Here I want to bring in some humor. The project consists of two parts: a snack brand named 'Popo Coin' and a video ad. The video ad consists of news clips that I recorded during dinner time and a record of my father's education on me 'to love the country'.
