Art in Umrella Movement Part II (Photo, illustrations & music) 00:21:56 2014-10-29
Today marks the one month anniversary of the Umbrella Movement, and the art has attracted a lot of attention both locally and internationally. Some local artists have asked Hong Kong‘s museums to consider preserving it. They’ve decline. A stark contrast to the respect for “civil disobedience art” shown by London’s Victoria and Albert Museum in its current exhibition “Disobedient Objects”. Like the banner on Lion Rock, much protest art is inevitably transient. But it gets preserved anyway, through the lenses of photographers and documentarians, both local and international. Political movements invariably have their soundtracks, they can range from Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" and Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land” to Bob Dylan’s “Blowing in the Wind” and John Lennon’s “Imagine”. But apart from the classics, Hong Kong’s protests have been generating new music of their own.
