Departing from the figure of the Taowu, a Chinese mythological monster of evil inclination used recently by historians and writers to symbolise the violent fate of Chinese utopian modernity, this publication interrogates the role of systemic and structural violence in the making of modernity and its artistic representations, and uses the monster as a vantage point to capture global dimensions of the current crisis of social imaginaries.
