Ai Weiwei’s follow-up to Human Flow is a sharp and
moving account of today’s refugee situation. The Rest
focuses on Europe, the world’s defender of human rights,
as it closed its borders to thousands of refugees from
Africa, the Middle East and Afghanistan. They sought
refuge in France, Italy, Germany, Greece, Sweden, and
Turkey, but most have not found the safe havens they
wished for. Now they are no longer the centre of media
attention, put to rest, so to speak, and yet unable to move
forward and simply live.
