A: That’s too late.
M: It isn’t.
A: In your press release, you mentioned Hans worked with “somebody” on the CAAW, then just don’t mention CAAW at all, you know? You don’t have to mention that.
M: But it’s in there, there is a text.
A: Do you want me to show you the text?
M: There is a text…
A: Let me show you the text.
M: There is a text that says Ai Weiwei and Hans Van Dijk founded the CAAW together.
A: Let me read the Chinese version, because you’re reading the English version. Find my name there. Just find my name there.
M: This is the press release, right?
A: Of course this is the press release. Just find my name there.
Find my name there. This is the press release everybody received. They sent it to me and said, “Weiwei, would you look at this.” I didn’t even know I was in the show. I saw this and said, come on, how can the press release write something like this, in memory of my friend and at the same time distorting the facts. When I came to the show, the Dutch cultural ambassador said, “Weiwei, you’re here! Did you also know Hans?” I said, “Yes. It happens that I know him, he gave me his dentures before he had his operation.” They were all very surprised, so I don’t know.
You didn’t see my name, right?You wish my name was there.Is that true? You wish my name was there?
You see the Artists, you see the names, you see where they mentioned Hans for CAAW, I mean come on, this is a little bit too much, huh?
You think I’m too much on this?
M: I wanted…
A: Enjoy your dinner, bye bye.
M: Listen, I knew… listen, Ai Weiwei… Listen, Mr. Ai, I want to say…Can I say something?Can I say something, please?
A: Yes.(to be continue )
