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. Published in association with the artist, this book 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 also includes excerpts from his blog, in which his insightful commentary on the world around him comes to the fore. Throughout the book a wide selection of essays by leading critics and art-historians, as well as interviews with the artist, draw out his central concerns. An essential addition to any art lover's bookshelf, this substantial book is richly illustrated with over 450 colour reproductions.
