Ai Weiwei

This pictures go back to summer 2009, when I was invited to his Beijing studio for a friendly visit. Because his phone conversations are usually recorded by authorities, Ai Weiwei prefers to meet people face to face, at his place. At that time, Ai Weiwei was already sharing harsh thoughts against Chinese political system but was also happy to show his artistic projects, like the Sunflower seeds for the Tate modern in London. After our talk, Ai Weiwei was pleased to be photographed. When I asked if he could write again “FUCK” on his belly, he said “no, I have done it already… What’s the point?” Fair enough.
