1988 Thompkins Square Park Riot by Ai Weiwei

During the late ’80s and early 90’s (long before China’s “Big Chill”), Ai Weiwei was a resident

During the late ’80s and early 90’s (long before China’s “Big Chill”), Ai Weiwei was a resident of New York City’s East Village neighborhood. At the time, the area was an epicenter for counterculture movements and served as a breeding ground for artists and activists alike. While riots and protests were common, so was violence and police brutality, and all of it was documented in photographs taken by a young Ai Weiwei. Edited down from a lot of more than 10,000 photos, some 227 of these pictures are now on display at New York’s Asia Society Museum from June 29 through August 14.
