Ai Weiwei accepts teaching assignment
Veronika Roessler (07/14/2011)
Ai Weiwei has accepted a visiting teaching post at the Berlin University of the Arts, the university said Wednesday, July 13, 2011 but it did not know when he could leave China to take up the position. The university made its offer to the artist in April, shortly after he was stopped from boarding a flight to Hong Kong from Beijing and detained by border police. The detention of the artist and four of his associates marked the start of a case the Chinese government said was about suspected tax evasion, while Ai's supporters said it was a way to muzzle government critics. Beijing's tax authorities have asked Ai to pay 12 million yuan ($1.9 mln) in back taxes and fines. Ai, who has ties to the German capital, said in March before his arrest that he planned to open a studio in Berlin as his European base.
