Choi Yuen village, now demolished due to government's plan to build a high speed railway, had attracted thousands of visitors during a woodstock-like art festival held over two days in Chinese new year 2011. This book is a documentation of the festival, showing how the villagers and artists respond to and question the present model of development through various forms of art. A timeline recording various social actions of the whole incident from mid-2008 to mid-2011 is provided at the back of the book cover. 


'《新春糊士托•菜園藝術快樂抗爭》一書記錄的,就是菜園村村民與香港藝術工作者們怎樣一起在新春如廢墟的家園中,快樂地以文化藝術超越階級視野的限制,敲問香港人及香港的靈魂,思索香港如何能避免採用泯滅人性的發展模式,更新文化,創造出更公義合理和自由有愛的社會。 一九六九年美國有鄉下小鎮BETHEL辦胡士托音樂節,展現戰後嬰兒潮世代對愛與和平的追尋,二○一一年香港有慘被清拆菜園村辦糊士托藝術節,顯示回歸後香港人不甘向現實屈服,以積極樂觀的姿態抵抗不合理的強權。本書記錄了新春兩天吸引數千市民到訪的藝術節盛況,並從分析與採訪當中與大家探討藝術作為快樂抗爭的可能。' (書背)
