Chinese man’s 24/7 livestream of his self-imposed quarantine as performance art draws in millions

  • Performance artist Pang Kuan is willingly going through a two-week “self-quarantine” despite not having COVID-19.
  • On Saturday, he restricted his living space to a 98-by-98-inch platform at the Star Gallery in Beijing.
  • Pang’s performance, which he dubbed “Bye Bye Disco,” is a reflection of the current situation in China, where residents are forced to stay indoors as the government tries to contain the recent surge in COVID-19 cases.
  • The 24/7 livestream of the performance, which shows Pang going about his everyday life in his confined space, has garnered over 3.3 million views so far.  
  • While some viewers find the performance entertaining, others consider it to be “grandstanding.”
