Ai WeiWei Releases Heavy Metal Music Video

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 22, 2013
This morning rebel/activist/dissident/badass Chinese artist Ai Weiwei released a heavy metal single and music video on his website. The video and song, entitled Dumbass, features re-creations from his 81 days of detention. Also portraying the rock star fantasies he imagines his guards having, Ai Weiwei told the Guardian that his country was one of "crazy menace and inhuman conditions" and that the video shows an "inch-accurate" recreation of the cell, down to the wallpaper. "...stand on the frontline like a dumbass, in a country that puts out like a hooker. The fields are full of fuckers, dumbasses are everywhere... Fuck forgiveness, tolerance be damned, to hell with manners, the low-life's invincible." - Dumbass
