Free Thinker in China

Ai Weiwei finds trouble in creative ways

If it were the late ‘60s, when I was in college, you’d carry this book around in your hip pocket. You’d read everything the guy wrote. There’d be posters. T-shirts. More students would get cameras. They’d go see the movie ‘Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry’ at IFC over and over. They’d name kids after him.

You should not miss the movie. It’s 100% good.

I’ve become a little obsessed with him. I’m going to order an expensive book of his photographs. He took 10, 000 shots when he lived here for 10 years as a student. He loves New York. You see that in the film.

In a world where politicians and Lance Armstrong are bullshit, you’ll love this guy.
