What did Ai Weiwei say about Society?

Ai Weiwei has written many quotes about Society. E.g.,

  • To work in architecture you are so much involved with society, with politics, with bureaucrats. It's a very complicated process to do large projects. You start to see the society, how it functions, how it works. Then you have a lot of criticism about how it works.
  • The Chinese art world does not exist. In a society that restricts individual freedoms and violates human rights, anything that calls itself creative or independent is a pretence. It is impossible for a totalitarian society to create anything with passion and imagination.

It's very essential values that we all have to protect. But in Chinese society, people are giving up on protecting these values.
