Ai Weiwei is a Chinese contemporary artist, who works in sculpture, installation, architecture, curating, photography, film, as well as social, political and cultural criticism.
"Today, the West feels very shy about human rights and the political situation. They’re in need of money. But every penny they borrowed or made from China has really come as a result of how this nation sacrificed everybody’s rights. With globalization and the Internet, we all know it. Don’t pretend you don’t know it. The Western politicians—shame on them if they say they’re not responsible for this. It’s getting worse, and it will keep getting worse."
