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.

Es beginnt wie in einem Traum. Um halb acht Uhr abends betritt Sabrina ein New Yorker Restaurant, um nach guter alter Tradition mit ihrer besten Freundin Jessica Geburtstag zu feiern. Als sie durch die Tür tritt, traut sie ihren Augen nicht: Neben Jess erwarten sie dort in bester Feierlaune Sabrinas ehemaliger Philosophie-Professor, ihr Vater, ihr Ex-Verlobter Tobias – und Audrey Hepburn. Sie alle sind Wunschgäste einer geheimen Liste, die Sabrina vor langer Zeit anfertigte. Sabrina ist verzaubert und verwirrt, ihren Vater hat sie seit 20 Jahren nicht gesehen und Tobias, ihre große Liebe, stahl sich urplötzlich aus ihrem Leben. Darf sie auf eine zweite Chance hoffen? Und dann ist da ja auch noch Audrey Hepburn ...
