9781921410734: Ai Weiwei: Under Construction

This scholarly exhibition catalogue explores the ways in which renowned Chinese Conceptualist Ai Weiwei raises questions about cultural violence and history. The work is looked at in the context of a country where future possibilities are shaped by the opposing forces of ruin and production, patrimony and erasure--the logic of ruins in reverse.

Review:

"It would be redundant to cast Ai Weiwei in the flattering light of an iconoclast, deconstructionist, or even dust-breeder in the neo-Dadaist tradition. Amid a growing tide of globalization contingent upon the categorization of freedom, Ai Weiwei stands as one of the last arbiters. He understands all too well Michel Foucault's notion that freedom is not oppositional to power; rather, they are necessarily, related, engaged, and overlapping in the same discourse. This philosophy is manifest not only in his art but also in the other roles he has taken on in the art community as architect, curator, and editor."
