Ai Weiwei has established a new blog, ‘The Way of Ai Weiwei’, hosted by online knowledge forum Big Think. The artist has long been a prolific user of social and digital media, much to the displeasure of the Chinese government who in 2009 shut down his earlier blog and twitter feeds. Despite this, Ai’s first post on ‘The Way of Ai Weiwei’ (above) celebrates the power of the internet in communities living under authoritarian rule. “Chinese twitter and Chinese blog still offers a certain kind of freedom this nation never had before” he says. “ I think it is so beautiful, and I think it’s beyond the imagination”.
