Cities really are mental conditions. Beijing is a nightmare. A constant nightmare. – with these words Ai Weiwei concludes his commentary against the Chinese government in an online editorial for The Newsweek.

Weiwei describes the article simply as “a piece about the place I live in”. Yet for how much longer remains a question, he himself doesn’t know the answer to:

They always tell me, “Leave the nation, please.” Or “Live longer and watch them die.” Either leave, or be patient and watch how they die. I really don’t know what I’m going to do.

Read the article on The Daily Beast and consider making a donation to support the production of the first feature-length film about the Chinese artist and dissident, titled Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry.
