“8-hour Sunday Talk Marathon – Ai Weiwei x Art x Architecture”

*Japanese-English simultaneous interpretation.

Ai Weiwei's activities encompass the creative fields of art, architecture, editorial and design. For this special eight-hour talk marathon, a select group of art and architecture specialists – each with a fascinating creative relationship or something else in common with Ai – will sit down with him to discuss his work from various perspectives, including materials, techniques, space, history, culture and context. Members of the audience will also be given plenty of time to ask questions to Ai. What insights will arise from the combination of "Ai Weiwei x Art x Architecture" and these wonderful guests? Join us to find out.
