Screening: Ai Wei Wei – The Fake Case

For this month’s Makerhive monthly screening, we’ve decided to show: Ai Wei Wei – The Fake Case 

Come join us for this riveting documentary, reflecting on artist Ai Weiwei’s battle against the lawsuit thrust upon him by the Chinese government in an effort to silence him.

After 81 days of solitary detention, world famous Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is put under house arrest. He suffers from sleeping disorder and memory loss, 18 cameras are monitoring his studio and home, police agents follow his every move, and heavy restrictions from the Kafkaesque Chinese authorities to weigh him down.

Journalists, the art world and his family all want a piece of him and on top of that he is met with a gigantic lawsuit from the Chinese government, soon to be named ‘The Fake Case’!
