Abstract:

"The gripping story of post-Mao China and the harrowing fate of the artist and activist Ai Weiwei"--

"In October 2010, Ai Weiwei's Sunflower Seeds appeared in the Turbine Hall in the Tate Modern. In April 2011, he was arrested and held for over two months, in terrible conditions. The most famous living Chinese artist and activist, Weiwei is a figure of extraordinary talent, courage and integrity. From the beginning of his career, he has spoken out against the world's greatest totalitarian regime, in part by creating some of the most beautiful and mysterious artworks of our age, works which have touched millions around the world. After Weiwei's release, Jonathan Reggio dodged the secret police to interview him about his imprisonment and his intentions. Based on these interviews and Reggio's own intimate connections with China, Hanging Man is an exploration of Weiwei's life, art and activism. It is a rich picture of the man and his beliefs, what he is trying to communicate with his art, and of his campaign for democracy and accountability in China. It is a book about courage and hope found in the absence of freedom and justice." -- Publisher's description.
