艾未未作品 Works by Ai Weiwei

艾未未,出生于1957年,中国艺术家、激进主义分子,在建筑、策展、摄影、电影,社会及文化评论方面也有所涉及,曾参与瑞士建筑事务所 Herzog & de Meuron 为2008年北京奥运会主会场鸟巢设计。除了艺术之外,他一直致力于对中国当局的腐败和谎言进行调查,尤其是对在2008年四川地震中倒塌的校舍建造中存在的腐败丑闻进行曝光。2011年4月3日,他在北京首都机场被北京警方带走,同时他在草场地的工作室也被当局关闭。假杂志特此刊载部分他历来的艺术作品,以表对他的敬意和支持。

Ai Weiwei (born 1957) is a Chinese artist, activist, and philosopher, who is also active in architecture, curating, photography, film, and social and cultural criticism. Ai collaborated with Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron as the artistic consultant on the Beijing National Stadium for the 2008 Olympics. Besides showing his art he has been investigating in the corruption and cover-ups under the power of the government. He was particularly focused at exposing an alleged corruption scandal in the construction of Sichuan schools that collapsed during the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. He intensively uses the internet to communicate with people all over China, especially the young generation. On April 3, 2011 Chinese police detained him at Beijing airport and his studio in the capital was sealed off in an apparent crackdown by the regime on activists and dissidents. Jia Za Zhi posted the selected works of him to show our respect and support to him.
