  • The Xijing Men hail, conceptually, from the fictitious city of Xijing, an imagined state in East Asia. The term Xijing meaning “western capital” etymologically draws from the names of cities in China, Korea and Japan. Relying on humor, satire, sarcasm and absurdity, the collective explores mythology, tradition, politics, government, and economics by staging mock cultural and sporting events. Formed as a response to poor continental relations between the three nations, the collective creates scenarios that question the role of the nation-state.
