Human rights are meaningless, you will be assimilated? Here's a contemporary art museum!
So check out this wonderful Borg cube style contemporary art museum in Guangdong China
. Neat eh, except that erecting huge contemporary museums while still holding and apparently torturing Ai Weiwei
makes the entire idea of contemporary art in China incredibly farcical. It essentially undoes the entire effort of the 2008 Olympic games.
That's right, every time something Chinese blips up on the press radar I'm going to use it as an excuse to bring up Ai Weiwei's incarceration and I think everybody else should do it too.
Overall, the Chinese government has painted themselves into a corner and I fear it wont end well for anyone involved. Thankfully Secretary of State Hillary Clinton isn't glossing over this issue and has been heaping on the pressure this week
Here is a Petition Calling for the Release of Ai Weiwei.
But it says on their website that: "Change.org is experiencing intermittent downtime due to a cyber-attack originating in China, which the FBI is investigating and the State Department has condemned. The attack appears in response to a Change.org petition signed by more than 130,000 people worldwide, who are standing against the detention of Chinese artist and activist Ai WeiWei. Despite this attack, we will continue to stand with the supporters of Ai Weiwei to defend free speech and the freedom to organize for people everywhere. "
Nice China... real nice...
