Ai Wei Wei Day

April 20, 2016

This Monday, April 25th, we’ll be discussing an article on Ai Weiwei (to be posted on this WordPress site under Readings).

His work with multiples, mirror images, repetition, and amassing is distinctly linked to labor, economies, mass production and, in turn, to commentaries on paradigms (!) such as the work place, justice, public space, etc.

In order to prepare for our reading and discussion, you will first do a serious inquiry into the vast body of his work. Keeping in mind our discussion on craft, spectacle, the everyday, and pataphysics you will choose one particular work of Ai Weiwei to present to the class in a 5 minute show this Monday at 2pm.  After this, we will discuss the article on Ai Weiwei.

Find links between making multiples that build into a larger whole and a motive beyond strictly visual concerns.

Due Monday, April 25
