Scroll To View


Just in time for the holidays ‘Weiwei-isms’, available through the Princeton University Press, is due to hit the shelves on December 12th of this year. Drawn from a carefully curated collection of articles tweets and interviews – the pocket sized book is filled with quotes from one of the most influential contemporary artists/activists of our time, Ai Weiwei. The topics range from Ai’s risky investigation into student deaths in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake to his arbitrary arrest in 2011 to his thoughts on art and the digital world. Sounds like a fascinating little read and a perfect gift for the artist, activist, popular culture or politics lover in your life!

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a
    hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
