Ai closes his exhibition in Copenhagen in protest
Ai closed his exhibition Ruptures at Denmark’s Faurschou Foundation Copenhagen, in protest at a new law that allows Danish authorities to seize valuables from asylum seekers.
“The way I can protest is that I can withdraw my works from that country. It is very simple, very symbolic – I cannot co-exist, I cannot stand in front of these people, and see these policies. It is a personal act, very simple; an artist trying not just to watch events but to act, and I made this decision spontaneously.”
