  Why attach great importance to literature and art work?

  General Secretary Xi Jinping has his own insights into literary and artistic work.

He not only expressed his love for literature and art many times, but also emphasized the importance of literature and art work on many major occasions.

  At the symposium on literature and art work 8 years ago, the general secretary pointed out profoundly: "literature and art are the clarion call for the advancement of the times, which can best represent the style of an era, and can best lead the atmosphere of an era."

  "Literature and art are inseparable from raising a spiritual flag, building a spiritual pillar, and building a spiritual home. When high-rise buildings are everywhere in our country, the spiritual buildings of the Chinese nation should also stand tall." The general secretary's words are thought-provoking.

  Every era has its literature and art, and every era has its spirit.

  Literary and artistic work must adhere to the people's stand and write endless epics of the people.

This is the echo of history and the proposition of the times.

  The general secretary urged: "If literary and art workers want to achieve success, they must consciously share the same breath with the people, share destiny, and heart to heart, rejoice the people's joy, worry about the people's woes, and be the children and cattle of the people."

  The longevity of Wulan Muqi shows that the people need art, and art also needs the people.

The general secretary has praised Wulan Muqi more than once, and encouraged them to "always be the 'red literary light cavalry' on the grassland".

  On June 6, 2018, 83-year-old film performance artist Niu Ben joined the Communist Party of China.

19 days later, the general secretary wrote a letter to "new party member" Niu Ben.

  "For decades, you have required yourself to be a party member, regarded creating for the people as your life pursuit, and adhered to the supremacy of social benefits. You have created many vibrant and infectious artistic images, which have been highly appraised and fully affirmed by the people." It must have encouraged Niuben and brought great encouragement to literary and art workers across the country.

  On September 14, 2021, the general secretary who was inspecting in Shaanxi walked into the Intangible Cultural Heritage Exhibition Hall of Suide County.

In the small courtyard, the prosperous Yangko in northern Shaanxi twisted and was beaming with joy.

The general secretary watched with great interest and said earnestly: "Folk art is the precious wealth of the Chinese nation. Protect, inherit and make good use of these treasures left by our ancestors."


  "The people are the mother of literature and art." The general secretary demanded that literature and art should give the most enthusiastic praise to the great process of the people's creation of history, and the most affectionate tribute to all those who struggled for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and all the heroes who sacrificed and dedicated to the people.
