Opening - Ai Weiwei @ DKM Museum

The busier than ever Ai Weiwei has just opened a new exhibition at DKM Museum in Duisburg, western Germany. Besides showing new pieces, Barely Something draws mainly on early work from the 80s, a period that the artist spent in New York.
The exhibition also traces his activities as a figure on the unofficial Chinese art-scene - such as curating subversive exhibitions or editing anthologies, the explicit purpose of which was to address a lack of artistic education in China, particularly in relation to Modernism.
