        Ai Weiwei Project on Alcatraz Creates Dialogue about Prison System | KQED Arts

        Because Chinese authorities confiscated his passport after imprisoning him in 2011, activist and artist Ai Weiwei himself has never been to Alcatraz. He designed and directed an installation on Alcatraz from Beijing.
