The Real Chinese Art World: Senior Citizens Singing Lady Gaga

Sure, there’s Ai Weiwei, and Liu Xiaodong, and Zhang Xiaogang, both great painters. And Zhang Huan did some excellent performances. But none of them can quite match up to this video of a group of Chinese senior citizens singing Lady Gaga‘s “Bad Romance.”

Performance art of the highest order? A masterpiece of moving installation art, played out on a postmodern stage? A political statement about the infiltration of the West into China? However you decide to interpret it… it’s pretty hilarious.
