Ai Weiwei

Ai Weiwei  is presented by "The Art Assigment" of PBS Digital Studios through a  video that reveals the most critical facts of the life, work and vision of this contemporary artist and activist, born in China.

Ai Weiwei in his artworks reflects, criticizes, and visualizes social issues and  the political inconsistencies of the Chinese government. Likewise in his works, he denounces and redefines the purpose of art as "a struggle for freedom." He condemns the inconsistencies of government powers worldwide, the movement of refugees, as well as imprisonment and injustice in the face of human rights violations. Eclectic and radical, Weiwei's work has been exhibited in different artistic stages like the Tate Modern in London, the Venice Biennale, and Documenta in Kassel.
