Gu Wenda,Wu Shanzhuan,Xu Bing,and Huang Yongping keep denying the past, the present, and even what they have just created.Their obsession with modernity leads to tireless overthrow and subversion, for they are no longer as engrossed in construction as they used to be. Such a tendency is obviously influenced by Dadaism.It is this avant——garde nature in their creations in the 1980s that brings about the“Endless Pevolution”effect and impact. At the end of the 1980s, most of these artists immigrated to the United States, where they encountered cultural settings and artistic contexts that are completely different from those in China.Consequently, many take the path of artistic resistance and otherness, emphasizing their own unique identity and identification in the era of globalization.
