Three things that we learn from the artist and dissident Ai Weiwei, whom we had the honour of hosting on Monday 27 March, as part of our masterclass “La Chine Invisible” at Bozar.
“Always get respect for what you are shooting and be humble.“- Ai Weiwei
“Real artists have to put themsleves in danger.” – Ai Weiwei
“Making an artwork is like a meditation, it’s going to an area where you have zero knowledge.” -Ai Weiwei
Speaking to Pierre Simon Gutman, Ai Weiwei shared his inspirations, convictions and numerous commitments with us in a personal, enriching and inspiring discussion, peppered with unusual anecdotes.
“I’m more self educated, not very well educated”. – Ai Wei Wei
