The most dissident artist of contemporary art of our time, the voice of the respect of human rights

He is a dissident artist and thanks to his provocative instinct, he is able to move between politics activism and artistic research, that’s why he is the major symbol of the struggle for freedom of expression. 
His works of art of installation, video and photography remind to the ancient Chinese history and the present time. In fact, he uses to play with contemporary and ancient, future and present, through traditional techniques and images and metaphor of the Chinese culture. His aim is to denounce the social contradictions between the individual and the community in the contemporary world. 
In 2017 he participated to the 74th Venice International Film Festival with his documentary “Human Flow”. The film tells with a great visual expression the epic migration of human multitudes, following the heart-breaking chain of human lifetime in 23 Countries of the world, including Germany, Israel, Italy, France, Greece, Kenya, Mexico, Iraq, Turkey and Afghanistan. This intense cinematographic work expresses the strength of the human spirit and poses a decisive question: will our global society succeed in overcoming fear, isolation and welcome humanity’s freedom and respect?
