Chinese artists Gao Qiang and Gao Zhen, known as the Gao Brothers, have collaborated on their art since 1985. Much of the Gao Brothers’ work is inspired by their family’s experiences during China’s Cultural Revolution (1966–76). Due to their subject matter, the Gaos’ works are frequently censored by authorities in China.
