About MTDM

MTDM, acronym for “horse without legs” in pinyin, was founded
in 2005 in Duesseldorf, Germany by two young artists Jun-Y Ciao
and Tao Yi, who commit themselves to the freedom, purity and
spontaneousness of music. Similar to the Fluxus predecessors’
exploration into the cross-border arts, the practice of MTDM can
be considered a tribute to the pioneers. MTDM is synonymous with
“good-for-nothing” in Chinese. In most Western movies, horses
with broken legs would be killed by cowboys with no exception.
As Jun-Y and Tao Yi were both born in the Year of Horse (1978),
the self-mocking name “Horse Without Legs” implies exactly the
profound thinking of the two artists on a philosophical question:
how to walk without “legs.”
