Human Flow: Ai Weiwei's take on the migrant crisis

Renowned Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei has turned his recent attention to the global migrant crisis.

In 2016, he set up a studio on the Greek island of Lesbos, where many migrants enter Europe. There he spoke with refugees and collected numerous discarded items such as lifejackets for use in his artwork.
