Question: Why do you have so many cats?
Ai Weiwei: I think it’s always a treasure for a human to understand another animal or another life. And of course we’ll never understand their language and their life, but still it’s such a privilege to live with them.
Question: Can you talk about if spending so much time around cats influences the way you live and work?
Ai Weiwei: The only thing I’ve benefited from cats is I don’t understand them.
