Ai Weiwei’s documentary, Fairytale, will be featured in PAMM’s auditorium with special guided exhibition tours of Ai Weiwei: According to What? at 6pm and 8pm.
Fairytale, a documentary film by Ai Weiwei, chronicles the making of a work by the same name. In 2007, Ai Weiwei invited 1,001 Chinese citizens of varying ages and backgrounds to travel to Kassel, Germany, for one week each, all expenses paid. The extraordinary event of such a large group of citizens traveling outside of China, many for the first time, enabled Ai Weiwei and the participants to discuss questions concerning identity, memory, love, dreams and the possibility of cultural dialogue. This 152-minute film describes the many challenges facing the artist and his volunteers in coordinating the work.
Free with museum admission.
