Ai does Gangham (and so does Kapoor)

After Ai Weiwei uploaded his endearing, and resolutely fun, video of him and his studio assistants performing Psy's global earworm pop tune Gangham Style; gallery stablemate Anish Kapoor has answered back with a slick 'all-star' version of the song and dance. Ai's film, in which the artist appears with handcuffs, got taken down by the Chinese censors, so Kapoor's response, featuring contributions from a plethora of international museum staff, artists and other art world types, is something of a protest. All very worthy, and an important message, even if the method of delivery is slightly cringe-inducing.
