The wisdom of Ai Weiwei

The wisdom of Ai Weiwei | Change Leadership Watch | Scoop.it

"Artist Ai Weiwei is perhaps China's foremost dissident, unafraid to confront the masters of Beijing, ...enduring prison, beatings and other tribulations." 


Excerpts:


Here is Ai, then, in his own words:


"Without freedom of speech, there is no modern world, just a barbaric one."


"Everything is art. Everything is politics."


"Nothing. Jail is about nothing."


"I was born radical."


"I don't want the next generation to fight the same fight as I did."


Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Change leader, art and MUCH courage.  Enough said.  Support Ai Wei Wei and follow his work on twitter here:
