Ai Weiwei (b. 1957) is a Chinese artist and activist who lives and works in Berlin and Beijing. After attending Beijing Film Academy, he moved to New York, where he lived between 1981 and 1993. Since his installation Sunflower Seeds at Tate Modern six years ago, Ai Weiwei has been the focus of several displays in British institutions. Most notably, his exhibition at the Royal Academy last October was hailed as ‘the cultural phenomenon of the year’. Other major solo exhibitions include the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C. (2012) and Haus der Kunst, Munich (2009). Architectural collaborations include the 2012 Serpentine Pavilion and the 2008 Beijing Olympic Stadium, with Herzog and de Meuron. In 2007 he brought 1,001 Chinese citizens to the German town of Kassel as part of his work for documenta 12, entitled Fairytale. He is one of the leading cultural figures of his generation and consistently places himself at risk to effect social change and encourage free speech. Most recently, he has been working with refugees on the Greek island of Lesbos.
