Upon his release, he was prohibited from traveling abroad, engaging in public speech, and was subjected to continued government surveillance. Ai Weiweiis one of the best known artists working today. His provocative blend of Chinese history and tradition within a wholly contemporary practice serves as a form of human rights activism, cultural commentary, and critique of the global imbalance of power—a fact that has turned Ai into a political target. A cultural figure of international renown, Ai Weiwei is an activist, architect, curator, filmmaker, and China’s most famous artist. Open in his criticism of the Chinese government, Ai was famously detained for months in , then released to house arrest. “I don’t see myself as a dissident artist,” he says.

Although Ai initially focused on painting, he soon turned to sculpture , inspired by the ready-made works of the French artist Marcel Duchamp and the German sculptor Joseph Beuys.

Exploring the fraught relationship of an increasingly modernized China to its cultural heritage, Ai began creating works that irrevocably transformed centuries-old Chinese artifacts—for instance, a Han dynasty urn onto which he painted the Coca-Cola logo and pieces of Ming - and Qing -era furniture broken down and reassembled into various nonfunctional configurations.

After building his own studio complex on the edge of Beijing in , Ai turned toward architecture , and four years later he founded the design firm FAKE to realize his projects, which emphasized simplicity through the use of commonplace materials.

In Ai was invited to write a blog for the Chinese Web portal Sina. Although he initially used the blog as a means of documenting the mundane aspects of his life, he soon found it a suitable forum for his often blunt criticism of the Chinese government.

Furthermore, nearly a year after the Sichuan earthquake —in which shoddy construction was suspected to have been responsible for the deaths of thousands of children in collapsed public schools—Ai lambasted officials for not having released details on the fatalities and mobilized his growing readership to investigate.

The blog was soon shut down, and Ai was placed under surveillance, though he refused to curtail his activities. From to , Ai Weiwei recorded the results of Beijing's developing urban infrastructure and its social conditions.

Beginning under the Dabeiyao highway interchange, the vehicle from which Beijing was shot traveled every road within the Fourth Ring Road of Beijing and documented the road conditions.

Approximately kilometers and hours of footage later, it ended where it began under the Dabeiyao highway interchange. The documentation of these winding alleyways of the city center — now largely torn down for redevelopment — preserved a visual record of the city that is free of aesthetic judgment.

Moving from east to west, Chang'an Boulevard traverses Beijing's most iconic avenue. Along the boulevard's kilometer length, it recorded the changing densities of its far-flung suburbs, central business districts, and political core.

At each meter increment, the artist records a single frame for one minute. The work reveals the rhythm of Beijing as a capital city, its social structure, cityscape, socialist-planned economy, capitalist market, political power center, commercial buildings, and industrial units as pieces of a multi-layered urban collage.

The artist records a single frame for one minute for each view on the bridge. Beijing: The Second Ring was entirely shot on cloudy days, while the segments for Beijing: The Third Ring were entirely shot on sunny days.

The films document the historic aspects and modern development of a city with a population of nearly 11 million people. Fairytale covers Ai Weiwei's project Fairytale, part of Europe's most innovative five-year art event Documenta 12 in Kassel, Germany in Ai invited Chinese citizens of different ages and from various backgrounds to travel to Kassel, Germany to experience a fairytale of their own.

This video documents the story of Chinese citizen Feng Zhenghu and his struggles to return home. The Shanghai authorities rejected Feng Zhenghu, originated from Wenzhou, Zhejiang, China, from returning to the country for a total of eight times in On 4 November , Feng Zhenghu attempted to return home for the ninth time but the police from Shanghai used violence and kidnapped him to board a flight to Japan.

On 24 April at , Ai Weiwei aiww started a Twitter campaign to commemorate students who perished in the earthquake in Sichuan on 12 May Remembrance is an audio work dedicated to the young people who lost their lives in the Sichuan earthquake.

The shooting and editing of this video lasted nearly seven months at the Ai Weiwei studio. It began near the end of in an interception organized by cat-saving volunteers in Tianjin, and the film locations included Tianjin, Shanghai, Rugao of Jiangsu, Chaoshan of Guangzhou, and Hebei Province.

The documentary depicts a complete picture of a chain in the cat-trading industry. Since the end of when the government began soliciting expert opinion for the Animal Protection Act, the focus of public debate has always been on whether one should be eating cats or not, or whether cat-eating is a Chinese tradition or not.

There are even people who would go as far as to say that the call to stop eating cat meat is "imposing the will of the minority on the majority".

Yet the "majority" does not understand the complete truth of cat-meat trading chains: cat theft, cat trafficking, killing cats, selling cats, and eating cats, all the various stages of the trade and how they are distributed across the country, in cities such as Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Nanjing, Suzhou, Wuxi, Rugao, Wuhan, Guangzhou, and Hebei.

This well-organized, smooth-running industry chain of cat abuse, cat killing and skinning has already existed among ordinary Chinese folks for 20 years, or perhaps even longer.

The degree of civilization of a country can be seen from its attitude towards animals. One hundred architects from 27 countries were chosen to participate and design a square meter villa to be built in a new community in Inner Mongolia.

The villas would be designed to fit a master plan designed by Ai Weiwei. On 25 January , the architects gathered in Ordos for a first site visit.

When the local government confiscated marshlands in order to convert them into construction land, the villagers were deprived of the opportunity to cultivate these lands and be fully self-subsistent.

How can art help the plight of refugees? Art tries to illustrate or explain the situation we are in. Art helps our human understanding of our situation.

After creating so many works of art that give voice to the voiceless across the world, I wonder what are the emotions that you find easier to think, write or express in Chinese and what are the emotions you find easier to think, write or express in English?

I am curious what is your relationship with each language, and how do they differ, if at all, emotionally.

For western readers, since I was not raised in the west, my arguments are more about matters of ethics and philosophy.

Rationality is easier for any audience to understand. What steps do you think can we take to persuade European public opinion to be more sympathetic to taking in refugees, especially in Britain?

You can only warn people what the consequences will be of not doing it. He never dies, you cannot beat him with one punch. You mostly look unhappy.

Where did all the sesame seeds go? Can I get some? Nick, Spain Ah, the sunflower seeds? Yes, give me your address I will send you one.

But seriously, in China, all the activists love these seeds, they call them the seeds of freedom. They make a little earring or something.

They really love them. How did you and your family survive living in a hole in the ground for five years? We had the kind of happiness one will never experience living on Park Avenue or in some kind of palace.

The line is cotton-thin. Ai runs a hand over his face. It is an artistic masterpiece: an intricate patchwork of stunning camera work, close-range iPhone portraits, and wide aerial landscape sweeps captured by drone — unflinching, apocalyptic, uncomfortable, exquisite, and very, very real.

Read on Vanity Fair. The book looks and reads like a series of short poems or Haiku. His topic headings consider humanity, crisis, power, borders and finally action.

He looks at our human commonality and how that is plunged into disaster by the artificiality of partition and the misuse of power.

Here the contradictions of this now famous artist who has been accepted by the establishment can be seen.

Read on Socialist Worker. Ai Weiwei is the most important artist working in the most interesting country in the world right now. If he is finding it a burden, he hides it well.

Notwithstanding a troubling spell in captivity last year, Ai refuses to be silenced. It is partly a matter of historical determinism: the world needs a prominent Chinese dissident around which to frame its reservations over that country's remarkable rise to power.
