The “Cultural Revolution” was violent and bloody. But artists have lent themselves to the game of coloring, of Maoist propaganda, of Mao's “cult of personality”, of his deification. Posters and interviews with their graphic designers (and a few observers), show how color tubes dripped lies, to cover the bloodstains. (Hu Jie)

Hu Jie

Acclaimed internationally for his paintings and woodcuts as well as an oeuvre of more than 30 hard-hitting historical political documentaries, Hu Jie is one of China's leading contemporary artists. Widely credited as the first native artist to frankly depict China's “Great Famine” and the deadly work camps of the late 1950s and early 1960s, his work focuses on individuals who have risked—or lost—their lives to tell the truth about the horrors they endured during the “Cultural Revolution” and “Great Leap Forward”.
