Long before he was a star of the international art world and a target of the Chinese government, the artist Ai Weiwei was at the center of an obscure group of Chinese cultural emigrés in the East Village, a community that he documented in some 10,000 photographs in the decade that he lived there, from 1983 to 1993.
