AI Weiwei’s Provocative Expressions and the Fight for Human Rights

Kaylee Kim
Waterford school



World-renowned artist and human rights activist Ai Weiwei has been creating art that has shaken the Chinese government for nearly two decades. It has exposed the atrocities the communist ruling power has showered upon its citizens and given hope to those that believe they have lost everything. In this review paper, I have compiled from several articles and books what I believe to be his most influential works that have had the most significant positive effects on the world. The works include Remembering, Sunflower Seeds, and @Large. I will discuss how these pieces were created, how they were received by his audience and critics worldwide, and their positive and negative consequences.
