'Ai Weiwei: In Search of Humanity' at Albertina Modern, Vienna
29 March 2022
'Ai Weiwei: In Search of Humanity' is the artist's most comprehensive retrospective exhibition to date, and is now open at the Albertina Modern in Vienna until 4 September 2022.
The exhibition deals in depth with the activist and commentary aspects of the artist's work, featuring cultural readymades, wall works, sculptures, installations, photographs, and numerous films. The show also addresses Ai's investigation of power structures – be it through the destruction of cultural heritage or the exercise of manipulation, censorship, and surveillance – and touches on his youth in China and early formative experiences while living in New York.
