Hexie Farm (蟹农场): The Great Wave Off Zhongnanhai

Hexie Farm (蟹农场): The Great Wave Off Zhongnanhai

For his latest contribution to his CDT series, cartoonist Crazy Crab of Hexie Farm finds inspiration in the wood-block print The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Japanese artist Hokusai. Responding both to the recent Beijing floods and the riots over a planned pipeline in Qidong, Jiangsu, Crazy Crab portrays the voices of the Chinese people as a huge wave. In this cartoon, past, current and future leaders of the Chinese Communist Party (Xi Jinping, Hu Jintao, Jiang Zemin, Deng Xiaopeng, Mao Zedong) are sitting in a dragon boat. The caption from Chairman Mao refers to the Beijing government’s declaration that the 7.21 flood was a natural disaster. (In the past, the CCP also regarded the Great Chinese Famine as a natural disaster.) However, in Crazy Crab’s words, in the Internet age, a regime which depends on lying and propaganda is under the shadow of netizens’ voices.
