Ai Weiwei 'does not feel powerful'

Chinese artist Ai Weiwei has been named the most powerful person in the art world, according to a poll compiled by ArtReview magazine.

But Mr Ai, who was released in June after being detained for more than 80 days by Chinese authorities, told the BBC World Service that he does "not feel powerful at all".

The 54-year-old is only the second artist to top the list.
