What is the role of the artist in a financialized (art) world?

Using fiction and metaphors, we will be looking across a capitalist horizon and share our findings, reflections, and ideas. No particular knowledge or skills are required. The event includes a sound intervention by Dimitris Papadatos. Please note: You have to register! Participants will be admitted at 7.30 or 9pm, and places are limited.
