Experiencing Self-criticism and Criticism in Ai Weiwei’s Humanity

Volume 18, Number 4, July/August 2019
by Vivian Chun Wei Lin


Article Description

Vivian Chun Wei Lin considers the complexities that lurk within Ai Weiwei’s compassionate video Humanity. She looks at how the work can provoke a reaction from the viewer that becomes both self-critical and critical, and she proposes this response as a possible reflection of the artist’s own life experience.
