The wisdom of Ai Weiwei | world influencers | 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."
