Ai Weiwei, is a Chinese artist who fights for human and civil rights. Architect, designer, director, he is the author of provocative and irreverent works through which he describes China and denounces some of the decisions of his government.

Ai Weiwei\’s works allow us to reflect on the human condition, its evolutions and its contradictions.
