Exclusive: Ai Wei Wei’s Last Interview With V Magazine

Before he was detained for being China’s most controversial artist of modern times, Ai Wei Wei sat for an interview with
V Magazine
. In the upcoming Asian-centric issue, the man who produced over twenty documentaries about corruption in China and launched campaigns that highlighted his government’s shortcomings discussed his life, the society he opposed, and why he didn’t mind being compared to Han Dynasty warlord Cao Cao. His words are now more precious than ever after over a month of no contact with the outside world since his arrest.
