Ai Weiwei is the most famous Chinese artist working today and in 2011 he was named the most powerful artist in the world. He makes works, often on an epic scale, to draw attention to freedom of speech and human rights and consequently is sometimes in conflict with the Chinese authorities. For the first edition of In the Studio Ai Weiwei invites Tim Marlow (Artistic Director of London’s Royal Academy) into the underground warren that is his Berlin studio for a unique tour of older pieces and works in progress. We’re here to find out how Ai Weiwei thinks and what drives his creative process. Image: Ai Weiwei, Credit: Getty Images
