Join us for informed discussions between experts coming from higher arts education, economy, social sciences and contemporary aesthetic practices. Besides high profile speakers and presenters, a visit to Art Basel is part of the programme.
ECONOMIES OF AESTHETICS
The conference will provoke new ways of thinking and observing the actual cultural, societal, political and economical processes, and provides a space for thinking in potentialities through a multidisciplinary view: the possible focuses on catalyzing urban change, the profitable conducts an analysis of a reloaded economic value system, the sensible explores an antifragile society, the desirable discusses architectures of meaning.
Additional to the sessions addressing these overall themes, the present discourse will be reflected through presentations from the expert fields of research, impact, cultural entrepreneurship and sources & resources.
Furthermore, ECONOMIES OF AESTHETICS takes place in partnership with Art Basel. This premier international art show welcomes delegates to visit the exhibition, with modern and contemporary works of leading galleries around the world and a reception afterwards.
ECONOMIES OF AESTHETICS addresses everyone interested and open for exchange and reversing discussions – from arts, design and university lecturers, to urban developers, sociologists, economists, or protagonists of cultural institutions.
