Original Format:
A brass plaque hanging above a ticket booth in Beijing's Chegongzhuang subway station recognizes this unit's workers as xianfeng for their exemplary socialist work ethic. As xianfeng became a descriptor increasingly used in the 1990s and early 2000s for avant-garde or experimental art, it was a term still in flux, with a past that lived on in present justaposition with new meanings.
