Ai WeiWei at Haus der Kunst, Munich

For this piece, Ai WeiWei used beams from a 17th century temple that was dismantled in 1911, which he found in some sort of scrap dealer's yard. Here they're combined with antique tables in an interesting interpretation of a traditional form that resembles a dragon when seen in full.
