In this conversation artist Elaine W. Ho and critic Edward Sanderson discuss contemporary independent artistic initiatives and collectives in the People’s Republic of China. In particular, Ho and Sanderson focus on the activities of HomeShop, a community-oriented art collective that occupied a shop front space in Beijing between 2008 and 2013 of which Ho is a founder. A key aspect of the discussion is the difficulty involved in sustaining and measuring the impact of collective practices that not only problematize the boundary between art and community, but that also challenge as well as occupy space within conventional sociocultural structures.
