"As, you may remember from our last episode, I'm doing something slightly different this season it's laid out in detail at the start of episode, one with Miranda July but the cruxes, this my co host Zelda Murray Brown who I miss very much is on maternity leave and the world is in flux and we don't know where we'll end up. So I'm on a six episode exploration of one big question. What's possible now that would have seemed impossible before. What has this pandemic broken open that can't be undone. Right. Now, it really feels like we have a unique chance to re imagine. So this season, I'm inviting big cultural thinkers on to explore that question with me. I'm also exploring it with my brilliant financial, times life and arts colleagues, and I'm exploring it with you. And today I'm going big my guest is I way way? I way is sixty three now and his name is almost an institution. This is China's most famous artist. He is one of the world's great living artists and he will likely be remembered as one of the most influential activists of our time. I met with him officially because he's promoting his latest art installation, it's a huge public art project Piccadilly Circus, which is like London's Time Square, and it's in response to the pandemic. It's called circa every night at eight, twenty pm or twenty twenty very cheap. The advertising screens turn off and that space is handed over to an artist. This month it's Iowa Way and through October he screening thirty really short two minute films one each day and. All of them sort of explore his life and his art and his activism. What I really wanted to talk to him about though is the art of protest because after summer defined by protest, it was really hard to think of an artist more appropriate to talk to about where we are. Now before we dive into the interview, let's set the scene. Let me bring you on a short journey through the life and work of I way way. Way, grew up in a family of artists. His father was a famous poet and when way was one, their family was exiled to a labor camp in northern China as part of Chairman Mouse Anti intellectual campaign. So I way spent the first twenty years of his life in confinement and the family lived underground in basically a whole with bushes for roof. Then in his twenties way left China for New York. He did street photography. He befriended Allen Ginsberg. He lived a very eighties New York beatnik life and thirteen years. Later he went back to China and that's when his career protest art really began in earnest in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five he became famous for a series of photographs that outraged people of him dropping and smashing two thousand year old earned from the Han Dynasty and the question there was did dropping that earn give it more or less value. You know like what are the objects we care to preserve and why? I always art is just big. It makes a big statement or it's a big ambitious documentary or a massive installation just nothing is small even in his photographs does big things like he's giving the Middle Finger to Tiananmen Square. Unsurprisingly. They are also entirely political. They expose things that authoritarian regimes want to hide or they make us face things that we would probably prefer to ignore his work also often targets the Chinese government, which of course, is a very dangerous game. Let's take one example a piece of work called remembering from two, thousand nine. So this was the year after the earthquake the regime was censoring any details about the death toll. So way asked a group of volunteers to manually count village by village how many children had died in schools that had been constructed negligently. He then went to the house to Kunst in Munich, which was a building made for Hitler and he covered it's facade with nine thousand backpacks and the pattern of those backpacks spelled out the words of grieving mother they had met during their research. It said all I want is to let the world remember she had been living happily for seven years. So you can see what I mean. It's big. And this is where the story takes a turn because in twenty eleven I way way just disappeared. That's something in authority can just do. He was detained by Chinese authorities for eighty one days, and during that time a massive social media and street art campaign broke out around the world. You may actually remember it the Hashtag was free I way way and there was this other popular slogan over t shirts and streets, and it was who's afraid of I way way. When he was released he was put on house arrest and in two thousand fifteen he got out of China and he moved to Berlin. So in these recent years in Europe, his work has gotten even more global in two, thousand seventeen he made a documentary it's called human flow and it was centered around the Syrian refugee crisis migration through Europe. But it was like a massive project it went to more than twenty countries. It follow displacement around the world and like many of his documentaries it's beautifully shot. There are these big wide angle drone shots that show the movement of human beings on mass, and then there are these close up shots people's faces and one on one interviews that forced us to really see them. It's really deeply empathic work. Okay. So that's I way way. Now. This is one of the more intense interviews I've probably ever done. It's definitely nuanced but I'm personally pretty desperate for nuance these days. So I hope you enjoy it. AFTERWARD, I've invited Jan Dally on to help me.

"Fan running on you in a room, your body. Is that paper towel? You're that wet paper towel accelerating evaporation off the top of your skin. Now this scenario again using desk fan you using a rotary fan. Yeah, so it's interesting to to dive into just briefly the history of the Rotary Fan and it seems that that the earliest example of this goes all the way back. To the Han Dynasty in China Han Dynasty. Engineer Dinghuan created a manually operated rotary fan with seven wheels around one eighty. And then later on during the Tang Dynasty of the eighth century, hydraulic power was apparently added to this innovation is a way of Basically for use in blast furnaces for industrial. Air Movement. So flowing water powered the spinning of a fan to circulate air into a blast furnace now, but in Ding wants original idea it would require. A little human power like somebody would have been turning a crank or or something in order to manually operate all of these rotary fans. So one's initial invention here was reported in the tax. Miscellaneous records of the Western capital and excavations from a former Han tomb, one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one seems to show the necessary parts to out a so the seven fans, so even ten feet or three meters in diameter were connected, so the one person could power them all. And this is of course, is another more elaborate means of just circulating air. which can can make the difference in a stuffy room right now it's not evaporative cooling though I've seen at least one wikileaks listing that says Dinghuan had an evaporative cooling system the cited sources. That I ran across and those wikileaks did not support it. They were just talking about what I'm talking about just air circulation. There's no evaporation beyond what's happening on your skin correct and I didn't see it mentioned in in inkster's the history of technology, which discusses this, but of course it's entirely within the realm of possibility that he combined a fan system. was something like the Egyptian. Reed mats scenario that we discussed earlier right having some sort of You know wet. Fabric in front of it, but I could not find direct reference to that myself. By the way Ding Juan.

It was quote Zoa Trope Lamp, which had a thin canopy bearing veins at the top, they were caused to rotate by an ascending current of warm air from the lamp. The canopy bore images, which, if the canopy were rotated fast enough gave the impression of movement. Wow, it's like A. It's like a fan for your is. It also shows that like this.

So you end up in Lancaster is that where you guys are was there a big Taiwanese? No, no. I was the only reason kin school. Wow. Okay. I was very hard. I couldn't speak English basically spend, you know, my first year sitting the cafeteria by myself getting bully all the time. I was going to ask you about that. They were assholes. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, like people just say like go back to China chain. You know, right. Like big guys would just like bump into me down the hallway the big like karate noises. Like Bruce Lee makes you know show. We're fucking original. Yeah. Why did you guys subtle in Lancaster? Because at the time, my grandmom my aunt lived in Keno Prussia. And so we saw you know, the flower shop for sell in town called Parkersburg which is like right next to Langston. Yeah. So we'll my momma bone. A flower shop there are basically helper every day after school. Yeah. Business did. Well, not really I gave my mom a bunch of vices. She'd never listens to me. Yeah. I mean, just sounds like a bad ass woman team here by herself set everything up. Yeah. I mean, like I would say like everybody is afraid of me my my restaurant. You know, if you people don't want to screw up, and I'm afraid of my mom when she comes in. I I don't want to screw up. So she's like, I'm top of the food chain. You know, you guys were you you were in Lancaster. And then how do you end up in Philadelphia? When I first moved to Philly. I you know, I wouldn't Drexel I went to school here and trying to get kicked out with Drexel. So yeah. With that. Why did you get kicked out? Too. Busy partying, you know, smoking weed fail out or you kicked out. I got kicked out. Yeah. I got suspended the four times each time for six months in the fifth time. They just kicked me. Oh, yeah. Six months suspension. Yeah. And it was for getting in trouble or was it for bad grades. Or what everything, you know? Like, Ben analyzing campus at grades. You know, smoking pot on campus. You know? Yeah. Just like crazy shit. That was a lot of fun though. So at that point, you move back in with mom, and you're in your twenties. And you're you don't have a lot of direction. I guess you're still working at the flower shop. Yeah. Like other shitty jobs, you know, just fill very on -ccomplish of something, you know, like coming here so far so far. And my parents sacrifice everything and bring me here and have nothing to show for you know, I was living in home, and, you know, watching all my friends and my relatives getting out of college getting jobs Mary kids. I had nothing. I was living at home, no girlfriend. No, nothing. Yeah. You said there was one point. I've read recently was your cousins wedding that really flicked the switch for you. So I was the best man of my cousin that we grew up with. It's like my brother was we hang out, you know, every week. He's marrying this beautiful wife and his his parents as a company he's going Herod. Yeah. Just house colors, you know, he had everything and at the time that nothing so that really hit me and made me I mean, maybe realize the most important thing that, you know, before I was just binding on all the people, you know, I don't have a chance to prove myself. And that at that point. I knew that I'm the problem. I the one who's responsible for my, you know, my my shitty life pretty much. That's something that a lot of people don't take agency with they don't realize that a lot of their their sheet of self inflicted. It'd be easier to blame. Everyone else yourself is your own. Worst enemy. You yourself is stopping you from going places. You know, like fuck yourself. You know, you know. You know? And then I started working hers save up some money, and and I picked Chinese restaurant because I mean, I don't know anything else. I don't have a degree anything. You know? I I'm not an expert in anything. So I figured that getting a restaurant. It's almost like an work, very hard. I should be a Bill to support myself and my family, I don't really need the skill. You know, that's why I thought that time was the first restaurant was hundred eighteen extant. Okay. Not an easy place to make it work. I wouldn't think I mean, it's okay. I mean, it's Chester county. I grew up in Chester county on a familiar with that area. And really know what the hell is doing like, I only I had like three months busboy experience when I was working in Haley at a Chinese restaurant out there. Yeah. You start making. What was the what was the you? Remember the first day. But I thought it was total chaos. We open a mother's day eleven years ago. And you know, I I didn't know I was still in and my shift at the time. He he was a very well known chef. So he, you know, the war got out that he's opening, you know, in my restaurant, and we're like busy from day one. How did you pull out a well known chef for with because at the time sh- she used to work for my partner. Yeah. And so she took over the kitchen my partner, and I took over, you know, front of the house on house. Yeah. And in the beginning was a great relationship, but you know, with fell out like somewhere, you know, the partner or the sheriffs later both both. Now, do you read that to them or you let me goes everybody? You know? I mean, the time I didn't know doing, and, you know, they're they're they're doing what every Chinese restaurants. Do I which I don't wanna do that. You know, they always tell me all, you know, like, many, we don't have, you know, Americanized Chinese food. You must be fucking crazy. You don't say generous chicken. I'm like, I hate that dish. How are we going to sell it? Right. You know? So and I I'll be like cursing customers humorous way joking around. You can't talk to customers. I crazy. I'm like they're loving it. And everybody loves it. You know like you. Did you do a soft opening or you're just like so not mothers? Over the extent store and never had a grand opening. So it's eleven years of self doping. The opening. Yeah. We gotta use that for the podcast. Glenn opus software. Episode sixteen suffer like, so then you moved you. Go of all places to Royer spurred apparently extant wasn't enough of a challenge. You said let me go even harder. She succeed. Yeah. Yeah. And so the royals for one gets moving, and then you're like, I'm going for the big time. I'm going to the big city. What was what was the mindset? What was that the plan? Was there a plan all along or we just kind of like, well, I've got to now I guess I'll do a third one. I mean one question I get asked by lot of other rush on tours is wouldn't you know, you ready for a second or third. You know, like I I don't like again. I don't think about that kind of stuff. I I I made a work the first one then I'm like, oh, that's easy. And. Let me try the second one that's kinda easy. And it just become like a diction for me that, you know, I'm not in a business to make money not really like going out and never had money. And, but it's a sense of accomplishment in of you know, people now looking down on me that is my goal the pride of. Yeah. I own restaurant. And you know, before I was black. She was like, you know, got nowhere to go. And nobody will listen to me. But now like everybody listens to me as greatest failing. Yeah. It doesn't mean. I'm listening to you. A lot more than before.

Hope that feeling of of you know, it's like it's like it's so grim dark. It's the most grid because it's like I am up against death. I'm up against this thing that is ever patient and ever lasting in his probably in the game mean, it's probably going to kill you. It's very dangerous game to play in part of the fun is not in did I win. But did I almost win? Now. If I understand the war hammer universe correctly. It would also be the implication that humans are not really good, right? No. The humans are awful. But they're the best choice compared to all of the other awful things in the universe. All right, which does feel kind of appropriately. Like like ancient that it could have mechanics like this could have found their their way and say Babylonian mindset while like that. All right. Let's take one more break when we come back. We're going to just roll through a few more examples of ancient board games and board games of note in close out. Hey, everybody. This is Chuck from the movie crush podcast, and I wanted to alert everyone to a very special episode. I was able to get Mr. Christopher Walken believe it or not into the studio to talk about the movie footloose. Here's a little taste of what you can expect. And then, you know, think you're talking about that great farmhouse dance sequence when he's by himself in the warehouse. It's one of the most absurd things I've ever seen. I mean, it's enjoyable as hell dancer, you know, Hofer at hot. But. Yeah, this kid and he's angry. He's very angry. He's been pushed I wrote down. I took notes wrote down whole towns against him. Uh-huh. And took notes for this did while because I wouldn't remember anything fear an ex watch that yesterday. And you can listen subscribe at apple podcasts or on the I heart radio app or wherever you listen to podcasts. All right. We're back. Now, one of the games that seemed kind of interesting to me is a game of if I understand correctly. It's basically of unknown mechanics known as Lou Bo, which is an ancient Chinese board game, right? The name means six sticks. It's the game of six sticks. Lugo sounds a lot better the roles of a lot lot easier. So the the rules of this game. Yeah. Are still uncertain, but we see figurines of men playing it from Han dynasty tombs. That would have been the area of two thousand two BC e to twenty see and it was likely invented in the first millennium BC, but the height of its popularity was definitely the Han dynasty. So there would have been two players. There was a board in sticks were thrown to determine the movement of pieces in one of the reasons we don't know a lot about his game this game died out because there was. As an invasive. There was another game. There was a competitor the game of go into the picture in the Joe dynasty around some more in the region of ten forty six through to fifty sixty c e and eventually just overtook Lugo to become the most important board game in Chinese culture. And it remains so to this day. Now, we didn't. We're talking about casting the sticks here. One thing we didn't even really get into this into it all in this was the long dice. You see these referenced in in some of the Hindu epics casting the long dice in battle. You know, what is that whether just type of dice that were long and more stick like, but they were used as a as a form of of generating a random figure now speaking of India, we do have to at least touch on chess really quickly again chess much later game than anything else we've discussed here. First millennium see came out of India. And it's still commands a global following today. And it's even though it's not as ancient as he's other games. It's still pretty old, and it's really impressive. That chess remains such a standard of strategic board games. You know like it is. I mean, it is kind of the gold standard. I mean, I think it's one of those games that doesn't really need much fluffed because its mechanics or so..

"Okay. So this this is where we're zoning in on in terms of this Jade, burial armor being created, right? There's obviously many dynasties afterward. So the Han dynasty is is is big money early on like this is this is again, a time of things coming together of unity. Certainly there are still lots of lingering problems as within a, you know, imperial scenario. But but it's a time where we're there's an there's enough enough riches out there. There's enough specialization that you can have something like a fancy funeral tradition. Take place now overall the Han dynasty, Ryan ran from two. Oh, two or two six until two twenty one see. So we're talking about a pretty long stretch here in at the end of this in two twenty one c that's when everything's splits into the three kingdoms, but we divided the Han dynasty up into the first the former or western Han dynasty and the and also the later or eastern Han dynasty. And that's because in the midst of this this long f- four centuries stretch, you have a rebellion take place. And so basically what happens is a Han dynasty official Wang making seizes power. And and in this. This is referred to as the Xin dynasty nine through twenty three eight d he does a pretty poor job in the Huns reclaimed power in twenty three AD after besieging the imperial palace. He dies in the process. So in other words, you have to four hundred years of Han rule, but there's this one little period where newspaper. Like a twenty year period or actually less than twenty years of this one guy ruling. Yeah. Just getting taken down. So again, this is an influential force injuries in Chinese history. Saw the institution of Confucian norms. The roots of the imperial examination system, the age of great economic technological cultural and social progress Hans still refers to the main Chinese ethnic group. And this is again, also the period that gives us these these amazing Jade burial suits. Okay. So we've teased enough. What's Jade burial suit? Because I think when I first heard about this. My thought was that it was like iron, man. And it was iron man made of Jade, and that's not correct. There's thousands of little pieces in these thing. Yeah. It's between two thousand and four thousand of these little Jade pieces all of its own together. And it's sewn together depending on your station, it might be gold silver or silk while so. Really, the the suit description is probably better. This is a a suit made for a corpse in. It's a suit made of maybe an mostly stone. And maybe gold and silver or silk as well. I can't imagine that a living person could wear one of these in and move. No. Yeah. It'd be incredibly heavy. Yeah. Only a supernatural, you know, dead being right in a Hollywood movie could do it. Now, we referred back to our episode on ghost burial earlier. And and I do want to touch on that real quick. Because one a couple of the ideas we discussed in. There are central to understanding why this much care was taken, you know, for a dead individual. So we discussed the importance of Shiite, I'll the f- fillet O P PD in Chinese tradition is rooted in Dallas to philosophy Confucian family values, and it concerns the undying nature of the human soul. You know, the data live on in the afterlife. And then they're also ties to this Chinese notion of of of structural completeness. Right. That you have this this basic unit of the family, and if everything if anything is out of out of place there it's gonna cause disharmony in your life and potentially in the afterlife. Yeah, we went into far greater detail on this in the ghost burial episode..

"Is tied directly to the western Han dynasty, and we're gonna I know a lot of you out there or not. To have a real firm handle on the dynastic Chinese history. Don't worry we're going to route all that weren't needs to be placed in the in the time line shortly. But these suits are, you know, we can call them Jade suits, can call them J armor in the in Mandarin. There's sometimes referred to as you Shah, which are Jade caskets or sometimes you Ye which are Jade garments. And it is essentially a a stone garment if you think on that because because Jade is a stone. And that's probably a great place to start. Really? Let's just discuss what Jade is before we pile on its supernatural connotations and then get into Chinese history. Okay. All right. So Jade is essentially on ornamental green rock, everyone has probably seen something that is either made of Jade or is supposed to be made of Jade, but then what does that even mean? Yeah, I'm thinking of like in the local mall that we have here. There's like a couple like places where you can buy sort of like Chinese themed aesthetic decorations for the home. And usually there's like a piece of Jade in it somewhere, or it might be made of some kind of fake Jade, there's those. I forget what they're called. But they're like red ribbons or a threads. And they've got a piece of Jade woven into them. Oh, yeah. You often see little little rings of j. Yeah. Sometimes sometimes worn by by children in China's still were incorporated into has some sort of direct decoration or or personal adornment. And the the interesting thing here, though, is that whatever you're calling Jade Jade is the name given to two distinct minerals. Neff right and jadeite and in their purest form, either of these is white in Chinese it's referred to as mutton fat Jade, and you'll also have minerals such as iron and chromium that give Jade, it's mini Hughes. So there's not just one color of Jade, it's not like criolla. This is Jade as it up to your stone. And see if it matches between white and like, very green. Yeah. Very an darker greens. Yeah. So let's talk about these two varieties real quick. The the NEF right is sometimes refer to his true Jade, it's very strong. It has more vivid green coloration, and this is the stuff that the Chinese worked with during the Han dynasty, which is what we're going to be talking about today because jadeite wasn't introduced to China until the late sixteen hundreds via Burma. So when we're talking about these pieces of Jade armor, they're made using Neff, right? Not jadeite. Now jadeite on the other hand is more fragile, and it has a brilliant. Gleaming surface when polished now Jd is usually found inside pebbles or boulders where like the rough Stony exterior doesn't really give a clue as to what's in their Jade itself. It can't be chipped or flaked. So it has to be worn down using a rough paste and a combination of rotary discs grinders and tools and during the Han dynasty. This was probably made this paste.

Thanks to the crushing defeat of ending the JC Iran deal, even Russia being managed. But the biggest threat, the only strategic level threat we face is China.

Even you can go line and read it, and they every means possible. Just minute Terry, diplomatic economic trade related this knowledge to undermine America. The good news is donkey Trump forty.

Anna, with some degree trepidation right for because from purely economic and finance standpoint, eights. It's disruptive this president disruptive on a whole bunch of things, but disruption can unsettle the markets can make folks feel a little on edge. What should what should people that are concerned about Trump's approach to China? No, you're strategist in the White House. How is he playing this game and how do you think it ends when it comes to China. The most important message to listeners is that this is about the long game. If all you care about the show held reports next quarterly meeting, then you'll quite happy, precipitating, the rise of China, but when you realize what sign it does to American businesses, not just in terms of stealing intellectual property, but in terms of full IP acquisition, if you want to do business in China, then you realize that right now the way things going, China will eat, you'll launch sooner or later whoever you are, doesn't matter whether you'll Google apple, they will take your profits away from you. What we're talking about with Donald Trump is redressing the international trade relations. If you wanna do business with China. That's okay. But it's going to be fair and it's going to be transparent. That's all we are talking about. The last thing to reassure them is that China. Need a Medica much much more than we need them. Now, if Trump is successful with China, could you foresee a situation where it's actually leads to even greater prosperity? Certainly on our side of things, which is most importantly, but you think it could be better for China in the long run to actually stop these predatory behaviors and its business practices, China, if you, if you follow the eve Lucien teacher culture of Chinese nation since the Han dynasty Cova you understand is not just another country that is in Belgian Luxembourg's isn't even Germany.
