In the upcoming exhibition titled Weed Party, Chinese artist Zheng Bo will rethink Chinese political history through plants. The Chinese Communist Party was founded in 1921 in Shanghai’s French concession. A century later, a party (a fun gathering; not a formally constituted political group) consisting of non-humans is needed to rescue, and to re-conjure, the idea of communism. Homo sapiens may finally come to respect the vanguardism of weeds, which have always tried to pull us into a rewilded future.
