Internationally renowned Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei is one of contemporary art's most newsworthy figures, noted for both his groundbreaking work and his outspoken stance on human rights, which ultimately resulted in his controversial 2011 detainment. In an astonishing new large-scale project, he turns his attention to Alcatraz—a place he cannot visit because he is not permitted to leave China, but that stands as a world-famous symbol of both incarceration and protest. This book showcases a major exhibition of site-specific, multimedia installations and sculptures Ai Weiwei has created for the island, on view from the fall of 2014 through the spring of 2015. Featuring beautiful photographs and thought-provoking text, At Large is the essential document of this remarkable happening from one of today's most celebrated artists.

This book offers gendered, postcolonial insights into the poetic and artistic work of four generations of female Asian American artists in the San Francisco Bay Area. Nancy Hom, Betty Kano, Flo Oy Wong, Trinh T. Minh-ha, Theresa H.K. Cha, and Hung Liu are discussed in relation to the cultural politics of their time, and their art is examined in light of the question of what it means to be an Asian American artist. Laura Fantone’s exploration of this dynamic, understudied artistic community begets a sensitive and timely reflection on the state of Asian American women in the USA and in Californian cultural institutions.

Mein einstiger Lehrer pflegte Lessing zu zitieren „Rache ist keine Zierde für eine große Seele“ Ich bekam an eigenem Leib und an eigener Seele zu spüren, dass meine friedvolle Lebenseinstellung für die Katz ist. Korrupte Staatsdiener und Politiker eines europäischen Staates lehrten mich das Fürchten. Mein „Verbrechen“: Ich trat der Energie Lobby und der Politik empfindlich auf die Füße, als ich begann Grüne Energie auf dem Weltmarkt zu etablieren. Ein Staatsdiener- Gaunertrio aus der österreichischen Kleinstadt Feldkirch fälschte, stahl, log und betrog. Kapitalien und Tausende Dokumente wurden beschlagnahmt und gingen im Nirwana eines Staatsapparats unter. Heute halte ich es lieber mit Sir Francis Bacon "Vergeltung ist eine Art wilder Gerechtigkeit" Das hier ist meine Abrechnung! Eine wahre Geschichte....

»Wir werden leuchten wie Sterne.« Piper, ihr Freund Enzo und ihre beste Freundin Kit haben keine Lust, normal zu sein. Sie wollen das Leben fühlen, ihren Träumen folgen, sich von nichts aufhalten lassen. Und sie wollen nach New York, wo all das möglich scheint. Doch kurz bevor die Schule endlich vorbei ist, geht alles schief: Kit fällt durch die Aufnahmeprüfung für die Kunsthochschule, Piper wird zwar angenommen, aber ihre Eltern können die Studiengebühren nicht aufbringen. Und Pipers große Liebe Enzo gesteht ihr, dass er sich verliebt hat – in einen Jungen. Alle Träume zerplatzen, Pipers Pläne sind plötzlich nur noch Chaos und Zweifel, aber dickköpfig hält sie daran fest. Denn WENIGER, KLEINER, VERNÜNFTIGER oder EINFACH ist für Piper keine Option. Sie will leuchten. Das Tagebuch einer Träumerin!
