Social Sensibility R&D Department is an artist collective based in Beijing and Paris. It addresses fundamental questions about the nature of art-making and place of the artist in the contemporary socio-political context.
For “The Worlds Northernmost Chinatown”, Ronaldi presents three video works that represents the collective’s work and practice.
In one video-piece, worker and performance artist Mr. Wei Chengcheng chooses to deal with a thief stealing money from his home. He turns the situation into an artwork with unusual humour and empathy, setting an inspiring example of tolerance and dignity.
