Ai Wei Wei Sunflower Seed
I have been researching Ai Wei Wei’s Sunflower Seed art piece recently and found the background of the piece to be very interesting. Being an artist and activist, Ai Wei Wei suffered a lot of harassment and hardships from the government that carried over to his work. However, I am unsure how the Sunflower Seed imparticular may have been affected by the government. Therefore, I am looking for help in understanding how the Sunflower Seed’s origins and presentation were affected by public policies at any level of government and the practices of non-profit institutions.
