I sensed a great, infinite scream run through nature, Edvard Munch (1892)

Inspired by Edvard Munch’s most famous painting ‘The Scream’, Mad For Real’s eponymous performance reactivates this iconic picture into a live, vocalised expression of contemporary angst. Whereas Munch’s screams came from the madhouse or the abattoir of the 1890s, Cai Yuan and Jian Jun Xi’s Scream invites participation 110 years later in a globalised context of economic and social uncertainty. Resonating with well-known texts of Chinese modernity since the May Fourth movement, such as famous author Lu Xun’s volume Call to Arms (吶喊) of 1922, Mad For Real’s Scream reaches across time and culture into a single, communal burst of humanity.
