Shanzhai 山寨 is the Chinese neologism for fake. Technical or aesthetic modifications give fakes their own identity.

Shanzhai 山寨 is a city in the mountains by means of which we think of practices of replication, reference and faking as an equally European phenomenon.

Created during the two-week interdisciplinary project "Laboratory of the Arts" in Montepulciano, IT
