Well that didn’t last long. Just 46 hours after Ai Weiwei set up four live webcams around his Beijing home to commemorate the first year anniversary of his 81-day arrest, the outspoken artist was told by government authorities to take them down.
Four hours after the site shut down, Ai Wei Wei wrote in English on Twitter, “Byebye to all the voyeurs.”
The artist, who is currently under house arrest, told the BBC this morning that he “won’t be shut down.”
