Ai Weiwei Architecture
Ai Weiwei, born in the Socialist People’s Republic of China, is one of the most important artists of the present global art scene. For his provocative political opinion he had been taken under house detention – he plant a celebration for the official governmental demolition of his Studio. His creations are based on the idea to provoke discussions about their content. For example, he spread about 150 tons of porcelain sunflower seeds on the floor of the Tate Modern in London to remind especially young Chinese people of propagandistic pictures which show Mao Tse-tung in the middle of sunshine and sunflower seeds. The daab-book embraces some of the astonishing works of the exceptional artist.
