Ai Weiwei

Breaking 1000 antique teapots in the name of contemporary art, transporting an Ancestral Hall from the Ming Dystany to modern-day Vienna, making houses from tea leaves and creating giant letters from lifejackets; Ai Weiwei’s exhibition at the 21erHaus is a must see!



Ps. These lifejackets are the very same lifejackets worn by refugees crossing the Mediterranean Sea. Ai Weiwei hopes this installation will raise awareness about the plight of refugees around the world.
