Big show, bigger issues, April 12

12 Apr 2014

A prison cell ... jade handcuffs ... an installation built from the rubble of a demolished studio. Chinese artist Ai Weiwei has drawn on his troubles with authorities for his show, “Evidence”, at Berlin’s Martin-Gropius Bau Museum. Covering 3,000 square metres, it is Ai’s biggest show – but he is unable to even see it, as he is barred from leaving China. Yet Ai refuses to shy away from big issues. All photos by AFP.
