I’m a very lucky artist. I never really cared about the market. And from today on I will never sell one piece of work. I will feel happy - not only happy - I will feel a great sense of achievement.
Art is not made for sale. The market is not controllable by the artist. I think it’s a shame if an artist is just concerned about market. Of course, we all have to struggle, but there are many ways to struggle. And if the art cannot sell, that is fine.
In Their Own Words was recorded in Ai Weiwei's studio.
