The empty chair by Maarten Baas for freedom of expression in China

The artwork refers to Chinese Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo who was unable to receive the prize in person last year as he had been imprisoned. Baas presented the piece in Amsterdam this weekend to mark the 50th anniversary of Amnesty International.
