As a closing event of Episode II: Towards Autonomy of the inaugural three-part exhibition The D-Tale: Video Art from the Pearl River Delta, Times Art Center Berlin hosts a panel discussion between Li Zhenhua and Olaf Stüber, moderated by Marie-France Rafael. Throughout the discussion, the panelists will give an insight into their curatorial approaches and further investigate certain specifications of the time- and technology-based art form in terms of authenticity, curation, and distribution.
