Ai Weiwei is a global star and an enigma. DW followed him for a year for this intimate portrait. The film shows Ai Weiwei at home, at work, and on the road for work, as he prepares his latest series of works focused on refugees and their fates.
The Chinese artist has lived and worked in Berlin since leaving his homeland in 2015 and is now pondering his next step. Citing the language barrier as a reason for moving on, Ai Weiwei will keep his studio in the city.
Losers or winners of globalization? At the Berlin poetry festival, Ai Weiwei and Yang Lian connect through verse and on a T-shirt, while a Chinese factory worker becomes a literary star through her migrant worker poetry.
