Popular Memories of the Mao Era
Kirk A. Denton, Sebastian Veg

This chapter examines the Red Era series at the Jianchuan Museum Cluster, a privately-owned complex of museums not far from Chengdu. Denton analyzes the curatorial techniques used in the exhibits and the ways they negotiate commercial interests, a sense of intellectual integrity to be true to the past, and state imposed limits on how the Cultural Revolution can be remembered in China.
