National Dreams II
Nanxi Liu & Rokko Juhász
24 hours long durational performance installation.

First part of this long durational performance has been done in Changsha/China during American election in 2016, as a reflection to local and international situation when the world is facing the rise of nationalism. To start with National Dreams which is frequently been used in political propaganda, we gonna talk about our own experience on nationalism with so-called national symbols and objects, and rethink the relationship between individual and collective.
