Ai Weiwei to Open in Berlin
China’s best known and boldest contemporary artist, Ai Weiwei opens the biggest exhibition in Berlin, Germany. The show at Berlin’s Martin Gropius Bau museum opens a week from now. It consists mainly of new installations, involving as in the past strong critique of official corruption, political repression and capitalist excess in the world’s most populous country, China. The show is called “Evidence” and refers to the lack of proof that the Chinese authorities used to detain Ai on charges of tax fraud. It is unlikely that the artist will be allowed to travel to Berlin for the event. The museum has dedicated over 3000 square meter space so his provocative spirit will not be unnoticed. The show ends on July 7th, 2014 and marked as the cultural event of the year.
