The Symposium

Currently we are witnessing profound shifts in how art is understood, discussed, and practiced. The effects of these shifts create an antagonistic image if art practice and art discourse are considered. Whereas contemporary art discourse has been driven into a state of disarray, art practice has rapidly expanded its importance, capacity, and possibilities. Art practice now co-inhabits an increasing number of other disciplinary and societal domains. Its purpose—to inform and enrich everyday life, social processes, and scientific fields—has become enormous and is still expanding.

Experience & Knowhow Sharing
Focusing on how art strategies inform and enrich everyday life, social processes, and scientific fields; foster change and maintain traditions; enrich, transfer, and produce knowledge within transdisciplinary settings—FOA -FLUX is interested in a comparative experience and knowhow sharing and exchange.
