"One has to give Ai Weiwei credit for wanting to draw attention to the ongoing refugee crisis in the winter of 2016, but we cannot dismiss his voracity for the affective potential of the Kurdi photo, which he wanted to instill into his installation.
Ai Weiwei's predilection for capitalizing on 'affect saturated materials' and his narcissistic self marketing did not escape one cartoonist!" - and that cartoonist is me! When I made this caricature for El Español, it was meant to be a satirical view on Ai Weiwei's pieces about the refugees, and this @fu_berlin catalogue catched it perfectly.
It's been an honour to be featured in "Affect Me"! And I'm thankful.
