Long Description: For his contribution to Documenta 12 in Kassel, Germany, artist Ai Weiwei brought to town 1001 residents of China during the well-known art fair. With $4.14 million from funding sources such as Documenta's sponsors, three Swiss foundations, as well as the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ai arranged all aspects of travel. He paid for airfare, processed visa applications, refurbished an old textile mill into temporary hostel, transported Chinese chefs to cook meals, designed travel items such as clothing and luggage, and organized tours of Kassel's landmarks. He also installed 1,001 empty antique chairs throughout the exhibition pavilion to represent the Chinese participants' presence in Kassel. his visitors acted as both tourists and subjects of his art - viewers of a foreign culture, as well as signs of another.
