AI WEIWEI »BECOMING« – selected by KAREN SMITH

»It is at once a picture book, a very pragmatic social documentary, and a subtle carrier of current socio-political ideology in China: the absence of people, the builders, migrant workers who make the work happen, the invisibility of surroundings, environs that provide a context … yet just as life can be in China, an extraordinary ability to focus on one symbol or emblem of modernity at the expense of so much else.«
