“Censorship… The people will always have the last word – even if someone has a very weak, quiet voice.”

Art of Quotation

Ai Wei Wei, filmmaker, sculptor, painter, digital artist, performance artist, activist, filmmaker


“Ai Weiwei is the first artist in history able to use digital media with the same effectiveness of sculpture, architecture, photography, film, music, performance. By using social media as a platform for active, sociopolitical engagement, he is one of the most influential living artists and the ultimate ‘dissident for the digital age’ “
