Oh dearest Hong Kong. We’ve seen/inhaled better. πŸ˜·πŸ‡­πŸ‡°πŸ˜ž

"The idea of human rights needs to be protected, needs to be re-announced in each generation." In part two of my conversation with Ai Weiwei, we talked about how his visit to a Rohingya refugee camp inspired him, as well as the need to create art to remind us of our shared humanity.

To mark the 70th anniversary of the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights," Ai designed a light blue flag with a white footprint as a symbol for human rights.
He tells me, "I went to Bangladesh to see Rohingya refugees, so in the camp we see so many children and women and elderly people, they have no shoes. And also I see the same condition in Africa in different kind of camps, globally. So I made their footprints, with bare feet. I thought this would be a good sample to reflect the human condition. That’s why I used that image for the flag." Ai goes on to say, "If anyone’s rights is violated... we have to think that it’s our right being violated. Only by doing that we can become as one and protect our very basic rights, otherwise we will always be divided by politicians or some special interests." #AiWeiwei #Rohingya #FlyTheFlag #Migrants #HumanRights #UDHR #Art #CNN #NewsStream @aiww @flytheflag70

"This is a horrifying situation happening in the 21st century. You put people in this kind of location unwillingly and force them to study some kind of ideology..." - Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei, condemning China's Uyghur "re-education" camps in Xinjiang.
