Hexie Farm (蟹农场): The China Models
For his latest installment of the Hexie Farm CDT series, cartoonist Crazy Crab plays on the term “China Model,” which refers to China’s unique political and economic system of authoritarian capitalism, by depicting the country’s leaders as models in a naked fashion show. These models are showing off their accessories, which allude to their wealth and power, such as luxury watches and an axe. The models’ state of undress makes them “naked officials,” or those who have funneled illicitly obtained wealth overseas along with their families.
