Debate with director Alison Klayman, the Chinese artist Mona Zhimin Tang and journalist Floris-Jan van Luyn, chaired by Andrew Makkinga. The debate will be about the significance of Ai Weiwei’s ‘artivism’, the role and place of the artist in China and the relationship between art and social activism.


Andrew Makkinga was born in Kampala, Uganda in 1982 and moved to the Netherlands at the age of 9. He ended up living in Groningen, where he took various courses with local broadcasting companies during secondary school and arranged an internship in England to gain experience. He combined his political science degree with a regular spot on the panel of the talk show ‘Het Lagerhuis’ and presented the NPS television show ‘De Battle’, in which MCs take each other on in verbal battles. He is currently presenting TV shows on the NPS digital theme channel Cultura.
