Theft, cultural archaeology, politicial dissidents

UPDATE So, that's what I was going to talk about. My time got crunched though and I ended up having 3.5 minutes to burble away about Ai Weiwei. More Stevenson next time.

Today on the radio I'm going to be talking about Michael Stevenson's survey show at the MCA, Ai Weiwei's detainment by Chinese authorities, and 'The Art of the Steal', which is playing around the country as part of this year's World Cinema Showcase (and, if I get time, a plug for 'Herb and Dorothy' as well).

These are the links I sent to Radio NZ (plus a few more)
