The Chinese artist Ai Weiwei will present in person the Czech premiere of his documentary Human Flow in Prague next week, the head of the Czech National Gallery Jiří Fajt said on Tuesday. Mr. Fajt said that the well-known, Berlin-based dissident would also be involved in two National Gallery exhibitions in the New Year. The exhibition of his Law of the Journey, a huge installation in the form of a refugee boat, will conclude in January.
Ai Weiwei filmed Human Flow, which focuses on the migrant crisis, at around two dozen places around the world in a one-year period. The first Czech screening will take place at the Lucerna cinema on December 14.
