At the Art & Cinema for Peace evening held at Basel’s Fondation Beyeler last Sunday, Ai Wei Wei participated via a video message from his still ongoing house arrest, in which he criticised Chinese authorities for infringement of human rights. The documentary „Ai Weiwei – Never Sorry“ by Alison Klayman was screened at Fondation Beyeler for some 100 prominent guests who showed their support for the artist.
