The newest issue of mono.kultur has just landed at Monk House Design, featuring artist Ai Weiwei.
Ai Weiwei is widely viewed as the most important fine artist in China today. The outspoken critic of the political system in China gained widespread attention not only with his installations and projects for Documenta XII and Haus der Kunst, but also his architectural projects such as the Beijing Olympics Stadium and his social engagement.
With mono.kultur, Ai Weiwei talked about the fine arts boom in China, the mind games of architecture and why political activity can be a work of art.
We have also received a top up of issue #20 featuring Dries Van Noten and issue #21 featuring Tilda Swinton.
