In history, the theory that “human nature is evil” has been part of every culture, and scholars have even developed a series of sophisticated moral philosophies and approaches to social governance. But there seems to be no constant definition and logic for questions like: “What on earth is evil?” “Where is the boundary between good and evil?” and “Is there a grey zone or possible conditions for a role reversal between the two?”
"Being of Evils" curated by Chinese curator Lu Mingjun. The exhibition is divided into 5 units, 42 artists are invited to participate, exhibiting more than 100 pieces of paintings, videos, installations and other important works, to present and discuss together: How does evil come into being? What underlies the being of evils? And what makes evil evil?
