CORONATION is a work about the Covid-19 outbreak in Wuhan, China. Ai directed a group within the city to document the conditions during the city-wide lockdown that was put in place after the Chinese government acknowledged human-to-human transmission of the coronavirus. The video uses material from Ai Weiwei’s latest documentary feature of the same title. As of September 2020, there have been over 33 million cases and almost 1 million deaths from Covid-19 globally.
