Détective Animé@ Conversations with Ai Weiwei
A great reading on art and blogging. Weiwei became an architect by accidentally buying a book. This book was about an architect who decided to design a house for his mother. Wiewei became a blogger but he didn't have any idea how these things work, but he seized the opportunity when they offered him an empty online space called a blog to fill with words.
Being open to the unknown and confronting life and it's unexpected moments are the keys to his successful career.
"After Duchamp, I realized that being an artist is more about a lifestyle and attitude than producing some product."
Ai Weiwei, "Ai Weiwei speaks, with Hans Ulrich Obrist"
