A Celebs.com Original Interview with Alison Klayman, whose award-winning documentary of the world’s most powerful artist is an engaging introduction to, and exploration of Ai Weiwei and the forces that drive his work. Following Ai’s work on the famous bird’s nest stadium in Beijing in 2008, his actions, many of which are critical of the Chinese government, have seen him reprimanded in a variety of ways, and it is documentaries like this, as well as the artist’s own engagement with his fans through Twitter, that continue to add to the legacy he is fast constructing.
