Renowned for his politics as much as for his art based on social intervention, a new approach to the readymade, and Chinese traditional crafts, Ai Weiwei’s fame extends beyond the art world. This monograph explores 30 years of work, from his exile in 80s New York to the art as social campaign that led to his detention.
