Antonin Artaud dans la Passion de Jeanne d’Arc.
This is probably the best, most honest profile of Ai Weiwei I’ve read in years. This is how I know him, and I think Anthony Tao got it just right. —axm
Alas, that’s part of the beauty of Ai Weiwei that often goes unnoticed amid all the other praise: he doesn’t mind letting others benefit off him, even encourages it. He is truly an artist for our digital and social age, generously retweeting online and performing the commensurate act in real life. You hear about his big projects, but he has plenty of smaller ones, too, taken up in his name by assistants and others. I asked before the haircut whether we could film it, and his reaction was such a quick “sure” that it seemed to imply: Did you really need to ask? Want to twist meaning out of a Gangnam video, read cliches into his canvas of work, transform him into a symbol of your worldview? Go for it. It’s not the artist’s job, after all, to create and critique. (via I Got A Haircut From Ai Weiwei – Beijing Cream)
