Ai Weiwei – “Evidence”

3 April to 13 July 2014, Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin

Until 13 July 2014 the Martin-Gropius-Bau museum still hosts the political exhibition “Evidence” on 3,000 square meters in 18 rooms and the atrium. It is the world’s largest solo exhibition of the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei.

A special fact is that the presented pieces have been especially designed for this exhibition or have never been presented before in Germany. The artist installed, for example, 6,000 plain stools in the atrium, just like the ones that have been used for centuries since the Ming dynasty on the countryside.

Over 150,000 visitors have already been attracted by the expedition since its opening in April 2014. Therefore, the exhibition was recently extended for another week, now running until 13 July. Use the unique opportunity and have a look at the art of one of China’s most famous artists.
