Article quote: "Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei, who helped make his name smashing a valuable vase in the name of art, said Wednesday that he was miffed about another artist destroying one of his vases in Florida."

OK, so what you're saying is it's a good thing when YOU destroy somebody else's art but when somebody destroys YOUR art, then it's bad.

Got it.

Instead.....why not just admit that destroying anybody's art is just stupid?

J love Ai weiwei's work but I have to admit I am a bit surprised and disappointed at his response. IAs a fellow artist I sympathize with the the frustration the man that smashed the vase feels but I do not agree with smashing. It is however pretty hard to miss the symbolism he was going for.
