IOU


Many of the exhibit rooms were lined with "IOU" wallpaper. These official papers were drawn up for Weiwei's many supporters who sent in donations following the artist's arrest for tax evasion - a case which was never fully proven. For more signs, take a look at Signs, Signs.

  8. Transforming a rather serious document into art is clever. It becomes a larger document of historic proportion. Fascinating.
