Thematic Windows

The conference will be focusing on the presentation and discussion of projects, basic concepts and experience within the field dealing with international art and cultural projects that have immanent relevance for the public sphere, for processes of democratisation, for the discourse surrounding growth and sustainability and for the development of civil society.
Central focus will be placed on

These topics will be elucidated through the examination of various foci within plenary sessions, fora, workshops, project presentations and various other forums for discussion and networking opportunities.

The conference is designed to contribute to the international discussion around the effects art and culture have on social transformation, in particular on democratization processes and forms of political participation and social empowerment, political awareness raising and the forming of public opinion. Finally, we will discuss how the basic structural and financial frameworks governing projects can be re-thought within the framework of the above mentioned contexts.
