Ai Weiwei’s Brain

Here’s a quick visual update on Ai Weiwei’s medical case. For those who don’t know, Ai was beaten by police while attending the trial of Tan Zuoren, another very public crusader for justice for the children who died because of shoddy building in the 5/12 earthquake. Around a month later, in Germany, he developed a subdural hematoma, i.e., blood pooling in his brain. He had surgery, which was successful, and now he’s got a (somewhat) clean bill of health. He recently updated his blog with detailed documentation of his new drug regimen, some of the official documents from the hospital, and pictures of his brain!

You know you want to see the brain of the guy who came up with this.


Also, here’s a translation of a letter from his doctors there if you want more details:
