"The most important factor in design is time and place" says Ai Weiwei

Design objects are a reflection of the issues humans face over time, says Ai Weiwei in this conversation between the artist and curator Justin McGuirk filmed exclusively by Dezeen for the Design Museum. The filmed conversation took place at London's Design Museum between Chinese artist Ai Weiwei and the museum's chief curator, Justin McGuirk. McGuirk spoke to the artist about Making Sense, Ai's first design-focussed exhibition to date, which opened last month and is on display at the museum until the end of July. During the interview, Ai told McGuirk why he thinks the exhibition explores design in a multifaceted way. "I think it?s a very unique show in terms of the whole topic of design," said the artist. The exhibition, he explained, is about "how humans make definitions about our life, our memories and how our design acts relate to our past, our history and also [how they] relate to current personal issues or political issues".
