Lego Refuses To Send Its Toy Bricks To Ai Weiwei, Artist Says

He calls it “an act of censorship and discrimination.”



Lego has refused to send Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei a bulk order of its toy bricks, the artist claims, because it “cannot approve the use of Legos for political works.”

Ai Weiwei, a vocal opponent of the Chinese government’s iron-fisted censorship, wrote on Instagram Friday that he had planned to use the Legos in a piece on free speech called “Andy Warhol / Ai Weiwei” for display later this year in Australia’s National Gallery of Victoria, which placed the Lego order for him.
