  1. This is amazing!! I really wanted to learn the history of Ai Wei Wei, base on my research. Even before his fame landed him the design job working with a Swiss architectural firm, Ai had been an unrelenting critic of the Chinese Communist Party. Weiwei has used his art to address both the corruption of the Chinese communist government and its outright neglect of human rights, particularly in the realm of the freedom of speech and thought. Weiwei has been successful in using the internet (which is severely restricted in China) as a medium for his art. Though he was imprisoned by the Chinese government I’m still eager to learn his history and arts. Thank you so much for this information!! I’m looking forward to watch this free screening
