Chinese artist Ai Weiwei brought music to Syrian migrants in a muddy Greek refugee camp with the temporary installation of a white grand piano. A contemporary artist and political dissident in his native China, Ai Weiwei has been visiting the Idomeni refugee camp on the Greek-Macedonian border where he has spoken out against the wretched conditions.
After four days of rain, the makeshift Greek refugee camp has become a muddy field, but it did not deter Ai Weiwei, who helped to carry the white grand piano over the muck. Ai Weiwei was also one of several people who held a plastic sheet over the head of migrant Nour Al Khzam as she played. Formerly of the Syrian city of Deirez Zor, Nour Al Khzam had given up playing the instrument three years ago because of Syria's civil war. She played for about 20 minutes.
