Chinese conceptual artist and political activist Ai Weiwei has opened his biggest installation to date at the National Gallery in the Czech capital. His latest works have focused on Europe’s migrant crisis.
After spending years criticizing the Chinese authorities, the dissident artist keeps dealing with difficult issues by focusing on refugees. As Ai Weiwei turns 60, here's a look back at the restless provocateur's career.
The new DW documentary accompanies artist Ai Weiwei during work on his own film. It depicts his life between Beijing, New York and Berlin, and is a very personal look at China's most famous artist living in the West.
A former New York resident for 10 years, Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is back in the city to present a vast exhibition that will see 300 of his works spread across the metropolis. Refugees and borders are the key theme.
