Political Activist and Artist Ai Weiwei on Tour in U.S.

By Sun Sachs | 2 years ago on September 5th, 2011 | Comments | Permalink

Chinese political activist and artist, Ai WeiWei has an installation exhibit currently touring the U.S.  Ai’s artwork is poignant, visually stunning and deep in meaning.  After a 2008 earthquake in China where the government seemed to be more concerned about state propaganda than human lives Weiwei created a giant sculpture made from 9000 children’s backpacks bringing a voice to the thousands of children who died during the quake.  

The characters spell out the sentence ‘She lived happily for seven years in this world’. This is a quote from a mother whose child died in the Sichuan earthquake. Ai Weiwei said:

"The idea to use backpacks came from my visit to Sichuan after the earthquake in May 2008. During the earthquake many schools collapsed. Thousands of young students lost their lives, and you could see bags and study material everywhere. Then you realize individual life, media, and the lives of the students are serving very different purposes. The lives of the students disappeared within the state propaganda, and very soon everybody will forget everything."

"Without freedom of speech there is no modern world, just a barbaric one."
- Ai Weiwei
