This book, published in association with the artist, draws on the full breadth of Ai weiwei’s architectural, installation and activist work, including drawings and plans from a huge range of international projects, with particular emphasis on his use of space. The publication will also include excerpts from his blog and a wide selection of essays by leading critics, art-historians, as well as interviews with the artist.
