I'm looking forward to this documentary on artist Ai Weiwei. I saw his work exhibited while
I was in Beijing in 2009 and thought it was quite striking and bold for a communist country
that so obviously suppresses individuality and punishes "radical" behaviour. I think overall,
I was impressed with the art that I saw while I was there. There are some really exciting
things happening in the Chinese art community and I look forward to seeing Chinese artists
gain more notoriety.
The link below is a DesignBoom article about the demolition of Ai Weiwei's Shanghai studio.
It seems suspicious to me, especially because of the publicity around his new documentary..
