Performance art in China has been growing since the 1970s as a response to the very traditional nature of Chinese state-run art schools. It is becoming more and more popular in spite of the fact that it is currently outlawed.

Some of the more extreme examples of Chinese performance art have become notorious in the West. In 2000, Zhu Yu, a painter and performance artist from Cheng Du, created a scandal by taking a number of photographs of himself, supposedly eating a foetus as a protest against state abortions as a means of population control.

It can be seen as one of the most dynamic and controversial areas of experimental art practice in China.

But sometimes some of these performance arts are just puzzling and maybe a little bit crazy..

Is it developing in a heathly way? Exploring or overheating?

Maybe after seeing all these photos of those performance arts in China, you can have your answer.
