Controversy session: gentrification and misuse Museum of Arte Útil

06/02/2014
18:30 - 20:30

This debate is the second session and taking place in the room of controversies.

Art initiatives have increasingly taken on the role of urban planners. Equally, governments and city councils look to artists to regenerate communities. But often good intentions are coopted whilst the artworld settles for reading case studies within a limited framework. Within such initiatives who and what is being misused?

Guests: Bik Van der Pol, Theaster Gates (via Skype), Renzo Martens, Luk Sponselee, WochenKlausur.
