"This issue's special theme casts its gaze on a broader community, actively envisioning a form of "shared work and life." Holding the glass called "Action," which was passed on by the "Big Fool" Matsumoto Yasushi, a group of artists, curators, and activists are raising their glasses in the living room of Xiao Zhou Village in Guangzhou to celebrate the completion of a new space. They maintain a loose yet closely-knit cooperation as naturally as breathing; they inherit the community radio stations of Pirate Radio across various locations, using music as a lifeboat and collectively carrying out daily acts of small resistance with their listeners. 706 Youth Space once established a democratic experimental field based on "shared living," attempting to rewrite the boundaries between private and public."--doooogs.com, accessed 2/26/2024
