Hanging Man: The Arrest of Ai Weiwei
Accused and arrested of tax fraud at the Beijing Airport in 2011 and released after 81 days, Ai Weiwei did not give up or step back despite all the pressure and control mechanisms he was exposed to. To the contrary, antagonizing the great Chinese government he made the entire world hear about the false accusations through his artworks and cleared his name. Barnaby Martin’s book “The Arrest of Ai Weiwei” is ideal for understanding not only the artist but all the other thought criminals in China and to learn how to resist pressure.
