Ai Weiwei Underway

Ai Weiwei, Safe Sex, 1986

Influenced by readymades of Duchamp, Warhol, Rauschenberg and Johns.

Citizens' Investigation on Sichuan earthquake student casualties, 2009

"To remember the departed, to show concern for life, to take responsibility, and for the potential happiness of the survivors, we are initiating a 'Citizens' Investigation.' We will seek out the names of each departed child, and we will 
remember them."

Well,... I started making a blog post on Ai Weiwei's art, since we've learned so much about his life and process..... but then I found this post about his Hirschorn Retrospective and I realized we should just use this. :)
