Ai Weiwei, Chinese Artist to leave Germany and move to England as Germans are intolerant.

As the title says the Chinese artist is relocating to Cambridge as he is finding Germans are intolerant of refugees and immigrants. He also cites Europe's attitude to China, kowtowing for profit. I hope he finds a more open and welcome society in England and I look forward to the Guardian remembering this as opposed to banging on about what a hateful and racist country we are.


The Chinese artist and dissident Ai Weiwei is swapping his adopted home of Berlin for Britain, saying German society has become intolerant of refugees and that he feels like a man without a home.

The artist is to move to Cambridge with his partner and 10-year-old son, but will keep a studio in the German capital.

What a coincidence. Redshift reports that it is leaving Britain and moving to the Antipodes as the British are intolerant.

Funny how things work out, isn't it?
 
Holding post for Baglock to blame it on Brexit

Err.... Right. He's still keeping his studio in Berlin open. Playing the guilt card to drive sales?

Ach, nein, nein, nein. Hier gibt es nichts zu sehen.
 
So when can we expect his first post on ARRSE?

My understanding of his work is that he thinks off what he wants to say in his art, designs the idea or concept and then it’s created by craftsmen, his pieces are large. So in effect he is keeping his skilled workforce in Germany to create his art. This may change.
 
Chinese community here seem to keep a low profile, not into politics, sprogs do more than well at school, no victimhood cries of wacist,, playing that card all the time. Not even into sports teams?

All my German colleagues are fed up to the back teeth with immigrants, this'll wash over to anyone that's not a German of a couple of generations. When I wandered round some (not those) areas of Hamburg it was pretty obvious where the "refugees" had been housed as the areas had turned into No Go shit tips with unsavoury characters glaring at anyone daring to walk through...

As an aside, last time I was in Berlin there was a policeman permanently stationed outside a Jewish bookshop near the hotel to prevent it being vandalised.

Perhaps having an ex Communist leader in charge has caused German attitudes to change?

How many of them have origins in Hong Kong and not mainland PRC?

Pretty girls too.

(National) Socialism at its best - stir up trouble and blame it on a minority.

I went to Uni with someone whose parents were Chinese, they got abuse out and about for looking foreign, but hearing them speak especially when they phoned their parents and spoke Chinese was hilarious, it was always with a deep Brummie accent

If only our resident German/Art expert wasn't on RoP's.
This thread would be right up his street. I've no doubt he spent time restoring some of Weiwei's work in Berlin.
