Summary note
"There's no refugee crisis, but only human crisis. In dealing with refugees we've lost our very basic values"-- those words articulated by the world's leading contemporary artist Ai Weiwei in response to the current humanitarian disaster resonate the intellectual ethical legacy of the most important thinkers of our time. Giving powerful evidence of the shared experience of living in an uprooted world in which we are no longer 'at home', they define the role of art as a means to understand our complex reality, to instigate action and provide solace. In this time of uncertainty, we need more tolerance, compassion and trust for each other since we all are one. Otherwise, humanity will face an even bigger crisis, Ai Weiwei continues. The exhibition 'Law of the Journey' is Ai Weiweis multi-layered, epic statement on the human condition: an artist's expression of empathy and moral concern in the face of continuous, uncontrolled destruction and carnage. Exhibition: National Gallery in Prague, Trade Fair Palace, Prague, Czech Republic (17.03.2017-07.01.2018).
