Ai Wewei: History of Bombs




Internationally renowned artist, Ai Weiwei, takes over IWM London’s iconic atrium with a new artwork.

Be immersed in this site-specific artwork, as the atrium is given in its entirety to an artist for the first time in the history of the building.

Exploring international migration, conflict as a root cause of human flow, and the relationship between the individual, society and the state, History of Bombs draws on the artist’s ongoing investigation into politics and power.

History of Bombs is part of Refugees, a free season of exhibitions, artistic commissions and immersive events taking place across IWM London and IWM North in 2020.
