"Ai Weiwei is living in our future" by Hans de Zwart
Essay is not just about Ai Weiwei's arrest and experience of micro-surveillance, but also our unwitting complicity in the expansion of surveillance and loss of freedom.
"The individual under this kind of life, with no rights, has absolutely no power in this land, how can they even ask you for creativity? Or imagination, or courage or passion?”
Freedom is a pretty strange thing. Once you’ve experienced it, it remains in your heart, and no one can take it away. Then, as an individual, you can be more powerful than a whole country.”
