Chinese dissident and artist Ai Wei Wei became famous for works criticizing the Chinese government. He paid a high price for standing up to the authoritarian regime; he was imprisoned, and now lives in exile in Berlin. He continues to use his art to address issues ranging from freedom of expression to the refugee crisis.
