Cui Jian Comments on the Memory of Tiananmen Massacre

Cui Jian, who once performed for the hunger striking students at Tiananmen Square in 1989 and more recently turned down an opportunity at the CCTV spring festival gala, was asked about the memory of the massacre while promoting his new file in New York City.

Answering the question from Rose Tang (唐路), who was one of the students at the square during the massacre, Cui Jian stated that, regarding to that part of history, "although we don't talk about it. But in fact the event has influenced us very, very deeply... even as terror, even as wounds, even as a technique, a trick, or a quibble, it's still embedded in you."
