A discussion with the French writer, professor and curator Guy Sorman, about the exhibit "the Silent Strength of Liu Xia," a collection of 25 photographs by the Chinese artist Liu Xia. Liu Xia is currently under house arrest in China for being associated with the politically subversive activities of her husband, and 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Liu Xiaobo. In the interview, Guy Sorman discusses the political and cultural landscape in mainland China, the underground artistic movements there and the role of cultural production in creating a real impetus for political reform.
