Artist Ai Weiwei speaks powerfully about the global refugee crisis in his book Humanity.
My conclusion is we are one humanity. If anyone is being hurt, we are all being hurt. If anyone has joy, that’s our joy.
People around the world are inspired by Ai Weiwei's work and words, and are contributing their voices to the conversation.
Join the conversation and tell us what humanity means to you.
Place a point of light on the map:
We see the refugees’ misery on the news daily, so we know what is happening. At the same time, the pictures dull us. We think that the misery is so great that we cannot do anything about it.
Nationality and borders are barriers to our intelligence, to our imagination and to all kinds of possibilities.
We have to trust in humanity, not politicians.
This problem has such a long history, a human history. We are all refugees somehow, somewhere and at some moment.
Freedom is not an absolute condition, but a result of resistance.
We have to remember we have no choice. We’re either on the right side or on the wrong side.
The refugee crisis is a human crisis. We all have a responsibility in this.
