Description

“Everything is art. Everything is politics,” says internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei. His statement informs this comprehensive book that features sculptural installations, photographs, and videos from every aspect of the artist’s forty-year career and touches on many contemporary social issues. The works featured in the book include Straight, Ai’s gigantic installation made from 150 tons of rebar salvaged from the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, which comments on governmental corruption and negligence, and Sunflower Seeds for which the artist filled the enormous Turbine Hall of London’s Tate Modern with 100,000,000 porcelain seeds, each made by Chinese craftspeople.
