Item Description
This collection of quotes demonstrates the elegant simplicity of Ai Weiwei’s thoughts on key aspects of his art, politics, and life. A master at communicating powerful ideas in astonishingly few words, Ai Weiwei is known for his innovative use of social media to disseminate his views. The short quotations presented here have been carefully selected from articles, tweets, and interviews given by this acclaimed Chinese artist and activist. The book is organized into six categories: freedom of expression; art and activism; government, power, and moral choices; the digital world; history, the historical moment, and the future; and personal reflections.

Together, these quotes span some of the most revealing moments of Ai Weiwei’s eventful career—from his risky investigation into student deaths in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake to his arbitrary arrest in 2011—providing a window into the mind of one of the world’s most electrifying and courageous contemporary artists.

Select Quotes from the Book:

On Freedom of Expression

“Say what you need to say plainly, and then take responsibility for it.” “A small act is worth a million thoughts.” “Liberty is about our rights to question everything.”

On Art and Activism

“Everything is art. Everything is politics.” “The art always wins. Anything can happen to me, but the art will stay.” “Life is art. Art is life. I never separate it. I don’t feel that much anger. I equally have a lot of joy.”
