The First Intellectual

In this photo series Yang Fudong offers a

commentary on the split world in which

many well-educated young people in

China find themselves. On one hand the

younger generation profits from China’s

economic success, on the other hand

they wrestle with the question of what

political, social and moral values are still

meaningful within it.

There is a world of difference between

this image of the new intellectual and the

famous photograph from 1989 of the lone

student standing up against the tank on

Tiananmen Square.
