Ai Weiwei is a Chinese artist and activist known for his installations, sculpture, architecture, photography, and outspoken criticism of the Chinese government's abuse of human rights and democracy. His work has been exhibited throughout North and South America, Europe, and Australia. Ai collaborated with the Swiss architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron to help create the Beijing National Stadium for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, later distancing himself from the project and withdrawing from his advisory role in protest. Ai was arrested in 2011 on charges of tax evasion; after several months, he was released on bail and ordered to pay back taxes. He is currently prohibited from leaving the country without permission.

  • RT @s6SMItbJai81Fk5: 今天在最高法大厅,法官法警说不许拍照,这是规定。我们说你这规定大不过法律,我们行使的是公民的监督权。规定能大过法律?法官恼怒回头对同事说,你们都走开,让他们随便拍!法官们统统躲进办公室去了…… https://t.co/BKMzWqSN…Fri Jun 23, 1:57am
