Product story

Weiwei-Isms refines Ai Weiwei's thinking on individual rights and freedom of expression. Extracted from Ai's personal newspaper articles, Twitter posts, media interviews and other sources, Weiwei-isms is assembled around six themes: freedom of expression; art and activism; government, power, and making moral choices; the digital world; history and the future; and personal reflections.

"This book's small size belies its capacity to inspire, influence and instruct. Though the phrasing may be causal and the tone light and humorous, Ai Weiwei's "isms" cut incisively to the core of what matters in China-and in the world-today".
