Jingna Zhang Jeff Dieschburg plagiarization
  • Photographer Jingna Zhang, whose accusations earlier this month of a painter plagiarizing her work received the backing of the internet, recently shared the art exhibition’s response.
  • Zhang had previously posted on her social media that a painter in Luxembourg had “ripped off” her photo and won a 1,500 Euro (approximately $1,570) cash prize.
  • 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.
