- The organizers of the exhibition responded on Friday, expressing their commitment to copyright and assuring they were not aware of Zhang’s works prior to awarding art student Jeff Dieschburg the prize.
- They concluded by stating they would remain “impartial” by allowing each side’s respective lawyers to decide the case.
- Zhang recently hired Luxembourg-based firm partner Vincent Wellens, who emphasized that they would be giving “priority to dialogue” and noted that no complaint had been filed yet.
