Vanguard Worker Bus Route
A red and gold placard displayed in the front window of this public bus recognizes the workers on this route as xianfeng for their exemplary socialist work ethic. The silver and red sticker on the front bumper reads gongren xianfeng chedui (vanguard worker convoy). 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.
