About

See this collection of extraordinary Chinese counterfeit mobile phones in the UK for the first time. Technological interbreeding or counterfeit creativity, this exhibition explores what happens when technology and creativity are let loose beyond the realms of regulation and standardization. The Chinese term shanzhai refers to counterfeit consumer goods. This includes imitation, trademark infringement, parody, lookalikes and improved goods, particularly in the field of electronics. A shanzhai (literally shan: mountain, zhai: stronghold) denotes a remote village in the mountains where bandits had once recreated their own form of society, far from the rules of the emperor. Shanzhai Archaeology has been made possible with the support of CNC Dicream, Design Trust - Hong Kong, Institut Francais de Chine, Le Cube - Art3000
