“Liberation 4.0” is the name of the project developed by PIPA Prize 2016 nominee Daniel Beerstecher with PIPA Institute’s initial funding. Complex in its making, the project involves a number of technical and artistic professionals to be produced. Because of that, besides the established partnership with PIPA Institute, the artist also calls on the audience via Kickstarter to raise the rest of the movie budget.
