Agitprop/China (2012) is an audio/video installation about the use of propaganda against the people of Tibet.

The video shows a man committing suicide by self-immolation in protest of China’s occupation. This visual is projected in unison with an audio clip sourced from an article by Xinhua, China’s largest news agency. Within the story, a “Tibetan mother” is quoted as saying, “Thanks to the many good government policies, Tibetan-populated regions have never developed so fast, and our livelihoods have been improving.” An audio clip was created, looped, and compounded repeatedly over a 6-day period resulting in an unintelligible "chant". 

The poster announcing the installation is shown to the right.

Here are some groups working to liberate Tibet:
International Campaign for Tibet
Free Tibet
Students for a Free Tibet
