Learning how the contemporary visual art world works, one conversation at a time. How does the visual art world work? I don’t know either, so I will ask the people that work in the industry and try to learn how the contemporary visual art world functions and hopefully be able to take their insight and experiences and learn how we can make a living in the artworld.
We discussed: editions, analog vs digital and much more

What adjustments in the functioning of major European cultural institutions are required to support transparency, equal opportunity and fair distribution of resources in the arts?

How can the potential of art to prevent disruptions of continent-wide magnitude be explored to the fullest in Europe?
