Know more about the Panelists:
René was born in Würzburg and currently is the director of Wilhelm-Hack-Museum Ludwigshafen, one of the most important museums for modern and contemporary art in Rhine-Neckar, since 2014.
He has held curatorial positions at the Frankfurter Kunstverein and the Lewis Glucksman Gallery in Ireland and was the director of the Kunstverein Hannover.
Sohrab Hura lives and works in New Delhi. He is an associate member of Magnum Photos and is represented by Experimenter Kolkata.
While the core of Sohrab Hura’s work lies in photographs, he tries to break that form regularly and extend it into film, text and sound. In 2010 he made Pati a ten minute short film in which is an assemblage of photographs, collected sounds, film footage as well as text and his voiceover to give a glimpse of life in a village in Central India. Continuing his experiments with this half moving form he has made The Lost Head & The Bird (2017) & Bittersweet (2019). He is currently finishing the production of his film The Coast (2020).
