Widely considered to be one of the most significant cultural figures of his generation in China and internationally, Ai Weiwei successfully occupies multiple roles as a conceptual artist, architect, curator, designer, film-maker, publisher and activist.
Using a variety of formal languages with both traditional and innovative methods of production, Ai links the past with the present and explores the geopolitical, economic and cultural realities affecting the world with humour and compassion.
This book, published in association with the artist, draws on the full breadth of Ai weiwei’s architectural, installation and activist work, including drawings and plans from a huge range of international projects, with particular emphasis on his use of space.
The publication will also include excerpts from his blog and a wide selection of essays by leading critics, art- historians, as well as interviews with the artist.
