UnBeige: Ai Weiwei Won’t Be at Frankfurt

Our friends at mediabistro.com’s design blog, UnBeige, told us late last week that Ai Weiwei, who was one of several dissident Chinese artists and writers invited to participate in Frankfurt Book Fair programming—which as you can imagine was not received well by the official delegation from the People’s Republic, which is the “guest of honor” at this year’s event—is now unable to attend due to health complications. Weiwei is still recovering from surgery on a cerebral hemmorhage which more than a few people suspect was caused by being beaten by Chinese authorities earlier this year. According to an Art Info article quoted by UnBeige, Weiwei’s position is that ever were he able to travel, he has “no real desire for empty and pointless political debate.”
