The voice of anti-corruption in the literary and art circles continued, and the former vice chairman of the China Association for calligraphy fell in October

The current situation noted that in the near future, anti-corruption efforts in the literary and art circles have been increasing. Just prior to Jiang cunxiongs investigation, China Artists Association announced on November 29 the decision on punishing some members who have lost their morality and norms. Five of them were cancelled and two of them were suspended for five years.

Among them, Du Jun, former member of the Party group of China Artists Association and Deputy Secretary General of China Artists Association, was sentenced to six years in prison and 800000 yuan in fine on March 29, 2019 for the crime of bribery.

The procuratorial daily once wrote an article to disclose the details of the case, in which it was mentioned that, around 2010, shen Mou, a Fujian painter, bought 400000 yuan of Du Juns paintings one after another through a friends introduction, and became Du Juns old friend. In 2012, he took the opportunity to propose to participate in the painting exhibition held by China Artists Association (hereinafter referred to as China Artists Association). Du Jun, taking advantage of his position, helped Shens works to pass the review and be selected for the exhibition by influencing other judges. In the next year, he helped Shens works to be selected and awarded in the exhibition sponsored by the China Artists Association, and Shen was also elected as a member of the China Artists Association.

Before Shen, Du Jun was familiar with the business of receiving money, painting for others, and helping others win prizes. Wang, who has introduced Du Juns painting buyer for many times, found Du Jun and said that his friend Yu would like to participate in the art exhibition of China Artists Association. Du Jun felt that he was not good at a certain level of work, so he personally drew two works and put them on a name. He also used the loophole of the censorship system to help Yu win a prize in an exhibition sponsored by the Chinese Artists Association and was elected a member of the Chinese Artists Association. Afterwards, Du Jun received a 100000 yuan thank you fee from Wang. Im not the kind of person who takes money and doesnt do things, he told a client

Guo Zefeng, the prosecutor of the second procuratorial department of the third branch of Beijing municipal procuratorate, pointed out in the article that the problems reflected in the case are worth pondering. First of all, there are loopholes in the evaluation and award system of the art industry, which creates a space for corruption. At the same time, the face-to-face selection method failed to realize the independent selection of judges, and there were many problems of canvassing votes and human feelings votes. Secondly, there are loopholes in the member review process, the lack of professional review process, and the phenomenon of works fraud and judges seeking for personal gains.

In addition, Zhao Changqing, former party secretary and former vice chairman of China Calligraphers Association, was investigated on October 28 on suspicion of serious violations of discipline and law. He is the first vice chairman of China Calligraphers Association to fall into power in recent years. As early as the end of 2014, someone once wrote an article on the Internet to disclose Zhao Changqings ten channels for collecting money, including packaging himself as a first-class calligrapher, selling characters to collect money, conducting various calligraphy exhibitions and activities to make profits from it, and selling official positions of the Calligraphy Association, etc.
