Ai Weiwei Germany, 2017

Jason's rating of the film Human Flow

Ai Weiei is obviously an art world superhero, and one I have always found uncomfortably convenient for the Western episteme. Aside from being an art world superhero he is a humanitarian. Actually, the marriage of the artistic and the humanitarian is essentially the core of all he does. HUMAN FLOW strikes me as far more the work of a humanitarian than of an artist (not that it is lacking in incredibly strong images).
