Newspaper・Clothing, Wang Youshen wore newspapers on his body as he went out to buy another copy of the newspaper to “read” back home. As a member of the journalism and newspaper industry, as well as a consumer, “news” and “newspapers” appear frequently in Wang Youshen’s life. However, in artwork, Wang Youshen satirically “mocked” these things that accompany him day and night: though the “newspaper suit” had occupied almost all of his public and private life, he had to buy another copy of the newspaper and cram it into his mind.
