Accompanying a major new exhibition of Ai Weiwei's work, including many pieces made especially for the show, this book features numerous illustrations, texts by the artist as well as informed essays by leading scholars. A renowned sculptor, installation artist, filmmaker, author and human rights activist, Ai Weiwei is contemporary China's most well-known and influential artist. His work has attracted international attention for its criticism of the Chinese government. Much of Ai Weiwei's work is a reflection of his own feelings of imprisonment, rage, and powerlessness. This book offers reproductions of the approximately 50 works in the exhibition, some of which were specially created for Berlin's Martin-Gropius-Bau museum, and some even more specifically for the building's enormous glass-topped atrium. From large installations to smaller dioramas, these works present Ai's most recent artistic expressions of resistance, courage, and historical truth.
